    Re: YOUR starter for ten.

    It's a phrase used in some TV quiz shows for the easy questions at the beginning, so it's a way of introducing a fairly basic question that shouldn't challenge the reader.

    Here is your first, basic, very easy question that will earn you ten points/pounds/dollars and enable you to continue.

    The line originally came from a TV quiz show.
