Every required rule informations are on WICA  :yellow-meeple:
Which needs to be corrected a little bit, as it contradicts itself.

Looking at the introduction of the quiz, we are informed about the number of expansions to look for:
Quote
Each question will be presented by a member of the Meeple Council, who will indicate the number of expansions but will not participate as a meeple in the scenario itself. Check the number of the space each of them occupy on the scoreboard above:
- Gingerbread Man     1 expansion
- Snowman2 expansions
- Santa Claus3 expansions
- Danisthirty4 expansions
- The Grinch5 expansions (or more, of course :o)

From this, I've been looking for the correct number of expansions, and have drawn my conclusions from there :)

So if we consider Ukraine Promo as an expansions, we have it itself, exp1, exp8 and The Tunnels, by this there are indeed four expansions, no room for mini7, but it still it is not clear if that promo tile acts as a normal tile, or as a tile with an inn, it can be both.

What I learned from last year’s Quizz is that some situations require us taking decisions and name them…

When I send my answers to Meepledrone, I explain the logic behind them so that he can see how I arrived at my answer.

Yep, I counted the inn on the tile in the top right as the 4th expansion in this scenario
- Tunnels
- B,C&B
- Ukraine tile
- I&C

We'll find out eventually if I was right with this, or completely wrong   :o

When I send my answers to Meepledrone, I explain the logic behind them so that he can see how I arrived at my answer.
For questions with the wagon there is disclaimer to state which rules are being used, even though tiles are C2, we still can apply C1 rules.
For the promo it was not specified, and as using a house as an inn is a possibility (not a necessity), so the lack of specifying that special features are used, can cause them to be absent in this scenario.
Or simply this question will have two correct answers, and WICA will gain another clarification of the rules  ^-^

It was put there just so Dan could have been used for that question right? :D

- Danisthity: The Meeple Council loves to mix old and new expansions.
- Gingerbread Man: Show me!
- Danisthity: Look! Some tunnels, a bridge and the Ukaranian Promo tile...
- Fir Tree: (a bird chirps) ^-^
- Danisthity: What? Those sunflowers are cousins of yours?
- Fir Tree: (a branch bends) ;D
- Gingerbread Man: What do you mean by staying with us all until January?
- Danisthity: You can tell The Grinch. He will love the idea...
- Fir Tree: (a few leaves shake) :o
- Danisthity: Come on! Don't deflect now... It was just a joke, huh?
- Gingerbread Man: Which part? Ha ha ha!



Question #4: Can you tell Danisthity how many points does each player score after this tile is placed?



The blue meeple is a large meeple, the closest red meeple is a normal meeple and the other red meeple is a large meeple?

- Gingerbread Man: Of course! :)
- Gingerbread Man: Today's special is ferry souffle so...
- Santa Claus: Are you sure?

b) What is the maximum number of points Red can score for this road network after moving the ferries the player is allowed to? (0-5 points)
