  Who Wants to be a Millionaire contestant struggles to answer 'Where is The Great Wall of China?' If you are familiar with the popular game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? then you will be familiar with its very simple format. You answer a series of increasingly harder questions to win more money and have a number of lifelines available to you that can assist you along the way.

Spare a thought then for this young contestant on the Turkish incarnation of the quiz show who was baffled by a question, which really couldn't have been any easier. For the fourth question, which was worth 3.000 Turkish lira, 26-year-old Su Ayhan was asked ' Where is the Great Wall of China

In the short clip from the Turkish edition of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire aired on August 4, 26-year-old economics grad Su Ayhan of Istanbul was shown struggling to answer what should have been a pretty easy question: " Where is the Great Wall of China ?"

You answer a series of increasingly harder questions to win more money and have a number of lifelines available to you that can assist you along the way. 

That format is the same for the show all over the world. Although not everyone walks away with a cool million in their pockets, it's rare to see anyone struggle with the first few questions, which are usually very easy. 

Spare a thought then for this young contestant on the Turkish incarnation of the quiz show who was baffled by a question, which really couldn't have been any easier. 

'Go back to China': Woman steals phone with footage of her racist rant

  'Go back to China': Woman steals phone with footage of her racist rant She faces charges of robbery and failure to comply with probation."Go back to China," the woman named Tashia James is alleged to have said to an Asian woman on the train in Toronto, Canada, before realising that she had been filming the ordeal.

Contestant struggles to answer very simple question in awkward video. HAVING a bad day? Spare a thought for Su Ayhan, who couldn’t answer one of the easiest questions in Millionaire ’s history. “ Where is the Great Wall of China ?”

Yet contestant fails to answer ' where is the Great Wall of China '. Ayhan was left embarrassed after she failed to answer where ' The Great Wall of China Is ?'.

For the fourth question, which was worth 3.000 Turkish lira, 26-year-old Su Ayhan was asked 'Where is the Great Wall of China?' and presented with the options of China, India, South Korea or Japan.

Now, we know what you're thinking - 'why was that even a question?' The answer is literally right there in the question. Who would find this difficult?

In all fairness to Su, this wasn't the first question and she may have believed that it was a trick of sorts. So, just to play it safe she used her 'Ask the audience' lifeline. That's where things started to go wrong.

Amazingly, the audience was also stumped by the question with only 51 per cent, saying the famous landmark was in China. 

We can't vouch as to why so little of them clicked on the correct answer (maybe they didn't study Geography at school?) but it didn't help Su in her situation who then opted to sacrifice another lifeline.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire ? (abbreviated WWTBAM and informally known as simply Millionaire ) is an international television game show franchise of British origin, created by David Briggs

A young woman has become the butt of many jokes in Turkey after failing to answer a simple question: ‘ Where is Great Wall of China ?’. Su Ayhan, a 26-year-old student, was on the Turkish version of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ called ‘Kim Milyoner Olmak İster?’ ( Who wants to be a millionaire ), when

This time she 'phoned a friend' who, luckily knew the answer and saved her from any further embarrassment. 

Unfortunately for her, she didn't go on a Slumdog Millionaire-esque streak and win the big one. Instead, she got the very next question wrong, which was about the composer of a popular song in Turkey.

Sadly Su, and the audience for that matter, have become something of a laughing-stock in Turkey, with the countries education system being blamed for their ineptitude. 

Ahmet Hakan, a columnist for the English language Turkish publication The Hürriyet Daily News, wrote on 6 August: 

I hope many people in the audience failed to answer the question thinking it was too easy to be asked, setting a trap.

Otherwise, this huge ignorance problem cannot be solved, even with our new Education Minister Ziya Selçuk.

In defence, Su said: I could use my lifelines whenever I wanted.

Still, this isn't anywhere near as bad as Brenton Andreasik who in 2015 managed to get the very first question on WWTBAM? wrong.
