This Science Teacher Failed To Answer A Basic Chemistry Question In A Game Show

Imagine being subjected to long days and years of basic science and see a teacher, who you deemed an expert in the basic sciences fail to answer such a simple question. Frustration (directed towards the player who failed to answer) is what people who watched Who Wants to be a Millionaire felt when retired science teacher Pat Lucas failed to answer a chemistry question. Mirror UK has more details: 

Pat Lucas from Lincoln left the show with just £1,000 as the pressure got the better of her when faced a question from host Jeremy Clarkson.
The retired science teacher was asked: "A skull and crossbones is a warning symbol that specifically indicates a material is what?"
The options were A) Toxic, B) Corrosive, C) Hazardous to the environment, and D) Flammable.
Okay... Being a science teacher I see a lot of this symbol, you'd think I would have paid more attention to it," said Pat.
"Erm, can i use my 50:50 please?" she asked, and Jeremy obliged so just A and C were left.
"I wish one of the others was gone, I am sure it means hazardous to the environment.
"So I will go for hazardous to the environment, final answer," she said.
"Well you are a science teacher, so you could have got that right... But I'm afraid you didn't," Jeremy broke the bad news to Pat.
"You've just lost £1,000, I'm sorry about that I really am, I hope you had a nice minute or two in the chair," he said
