You answer a series of increasingly harder questions to win more money and have a number of lifelines available to you that can assist you along the way. 

That format is the same for the show all over the world. Although not everyone walks away with a cool million in their pockets, it's rare to see anyone struggle with the first few questions, which are usually very easy. 

Spare a thought then for this young contestant on the Turkish incarnation of the quiz show who was baffled by a question, which really couldn't have been any easier. 

There's no end in sight for the US-China trade war because 'both sides are more inclined to elevate tension than blink'

  There's no end in sight for the US-China trade war because 'both sides are more inclined to elevate tension than blink' President Donald Trump and China have been engaged in a tense trade war for over five months.Both Trump and China continue to issue new threats of tariffs. And negotiations have been scarce, increasing the possibility of a drawn-out fight.

For the fourth question, which was worth 3.000 Turkish lira, 26-year-old Su Ayhan was asked 'Where is the Great Wall of China?' and presented with the options of China, India, South Korea or Japan.

Now, we know what you're thinking - 'why was that even a question?' The answer is literally right there in the question. Who would find this difficult?

In all fairness to Su, this wasn't the first question and she may have believed that it was a trick of sorts. So, just to play it safe she used her 'Ask the audience' lifeline. That's where things started to go wrong.

Amazingly, the audience was also stumped by the question with only 51 per cent, saying the famous landmark was in China. 

We can't vouch as to why so little of them clicked on the correct answer (maybe they didn't study Geography at school?) but it didn't help Su in her situation who then opted to sacrifice another lifeline.

For the fourth question in her quiz Su Ayhan was asked ' Where is the Great Wall of China ?'. You'd think the answer would be obvious, but you'd be If you've been living on Planet Earth anytime during the past 20 years, you've probably watched an episode or two of Who Wants to be a Millionaire .

This time she 'phoned a friend' who, luckily knew the answer and saved her from any further embarrassment. 

Unfortunately for her, she didn't go on a Slumdog Millionaire-esque streak and win the big one. Instead, she got the very next question wrong, which was about the composer of a popular song in Turkey.

Sadly Su, and the audience for that matter, have become something of a laughing-stock in Turkey, with the countries education system being blamed for their ineptitude. 

Ahmet Hakan, a columnist for the English language Turkish publication The Hürriyet Daily News, wrote on 6 August: 

I hope many people in the audience failed to answer the question thinking it was too easy to be asked, setting a trap.

Otherwise, this huge ignorance problem cannot be solved, even with our new Education Minister Ziya Selçuk.

In defence, Su said: I could use my lifelines whenever I wanted.

Still, this isn't anywhere near as bad as Brenton Andreasik who in 2015 managed to get the very first question on WWTBAM? wrong.

Apple has reportedly pulled more than 25,000 apps from its App Store in China that were deemed to fall foul of Chinese regulations. “Apple itself has set up the rules on how to allow apps onto its store, but it didn’t follow that, resulting in the proliferation of bogus lottery apps and gambling apps,” The Wall Street Journal quoted CCTV as saying on Sunday.
