Funny, we had the same question on another game in France one week ago. I
was able to answer by elimination (because I already knew what the other
two propositions meant), but the three candidates missed it.
And by the way, we in France are finally gonna get "Who Wants to Be a
Millionaire". It's gonna be called "Qui Veut Gagner des Millions" (pretty
stupid name I find) and the channel who got it makes a huge commercial
campaign about it (with images of the program in its different national
versions). I first want to see how it looks like and if it's not too
difficult maybe I'll try to attend it (I was able to answer some questions
of the Dutch version even though my Dutch is still basic, so I suppose
without the language barrier I should be even better :) ). The only
difficulty is the first question to choose the candidate. I've never been
any good at speed questions.
