Which element makes up most of the human body weight? 'Phone-A-Friend' lifeline used
• A: Oxygen
• B: Nitrogen
• C: Sodium
• D: Carbon
With 17 seconds left, Dave phones his friend Alan. His other two Phone A Friends are his wife Sarah, and bother-in-law Simon, who Chris says "Looks like Oliver Reed". Alan used to be a school caretaker, but is now a stage manager. Alan says he's not sure, but thinks it is D: Carbon, as humans are Carbon-based lifeforms. He doesn't give a percentage of confidence, as the Phone A Friend clock runs out before he has the chance. Dave says he thought the answer would be water, which is not an element, but a compound, of Hydrogen and Oxygen. With 3 seconds left, Dave chooses Carbon. This is incorrect, and he leaves with just £1,000.
Dave says "£1,000 isn't bad for an afternoon's work."
