We are posting 5 questions related to Marx, Engels and The Communist Manifesto. All you have to do is correctly answer each question and send your answers to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please only email us once you have all the answers. The first two people to answer correctly will win a signed copy (plus some other Pluto goodies which we will throw in!).
We have already posted the first four questions:
QUESTION 1: In which newspaper was The Communist Manifesto first serialised?

QUESTION 3: Name one of the ‘utopian socialists’ as described in The Communist Manifesto.
QUESTION 4: According to the manifesto, what is the only thing which proletarians of all countries have to lose?
