Question one is right, and I guess I didn't specify on Question 2 :?
What is it mainly used for, and sulfur isn't the answer :D

Hi, I'm not sure if you're new or not to this marathon, but usually the person that answers correctly is the one to ask the next question. If you're just asking this question because you don't know it, this is the place to go => http://www.scioly.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=144&t=3701.

To hide something: [hide ]Title - What you want people to see|What you want to hide - this can be an image[ /hide]

Take out the spaces inside the brackets, and you should be good to go. Anyone can join the marathon.
