Key Signatures

Firstly, thank you for your awesome website!

I'm just concerned about the quizzes for the Key Signatures. The first questions on both tests seem to have incorrect answer. For the Sharp majors; the question was, "Which Key signature contains two sharps?" The answer is D major. Right?
The same with the Flat Majors test; the order of flats should surely be BEADGCF, and not FCGDAEB?

Please clarify? Thank you so much once again.

Thank you for getting in touch to let me know this. I'd like to say it was a deliberate error to see who picked it up - but unfortunately it wasn't!

I have taken the quizes down and will correct them first thing tomorrow and put them back up again.

Thanks again for your time - see, even a music teacher isn't infallible! :)

Best wishes,
