Miss smith, I found two errors with your quiz: 1. Number 2 I believe it was says that the ship was carrying 50 passengers and 2 crew, however Owens clearly states that they are only carrying 40 passengers during his mayday during the crash. 2. There are actually 12 crash survivors. Imam, His 3 sons (Ali, Hassan, and suleiman)Jack,Paris, Shazza, Zeke, Fry, Johns, Riddick and I believe you are forgetting the stranger that Zeke mistakes for Riddick and shoots, who says that he survived the crash
