6.  Answer to Bi-metallic Quiz Game question #563
The Bi-metallic 10 Kwacha of Malawi was the subject of WBCC Quiz #559.
In that question the subject was identified as farming.  In this week’s
question, what is the crop being harvested by the farmer?
a.  Cotton.
b.  Peanuts.
c.  Potatoes.
d.  Tea.
The correct answer for question #563 is d; Tea.  However, one source
indicated that Cotton was the product in the design and it looks like
cotton to me, so I have accepted both answers; lacking confirmation from
the designer.
