Christmas Quiz 2015

The last Quiz of the year is, as usual, the Christmas Quiz. This year it takes place on Wednesday 23 December.  And don't worry, it's not all about the Bible.

Le dernier Quiz de l'année est, comme d’habitude, le Quiz de Noël.  Cette année c'est le mercredi 23 décembre.  Et ne vous en faites pas, ce n'est pas tout sur la Bible.

Logical sequence (Quiz of 25 Nov 2015)

This question proved difficult and very few teams got the answer last night.
Cette question s'est avérée difficile et peu d'équipes ont trouvé la bonne réponse hier soir.

What number comes next in the sequence:
13, 17, 31, 37, 71, 73, 79, 97 …?

Quelle est la suite de cette séquence :
13, 17, 31, 37, 71, 73, 79, 97 … ?

(Hint: I didn't ask where the sequence could have started.)
(Indice: Je ne demande pas où la séquence aurait pu commencer.)

Erratum - Quiz 4 March 2015
