The first ever tube line was the 'CSLR', City & South London Railway.

The first Underground Railway is the Metropolitan Railway, between Paddington and Farringdon.

Yes, the question suggests the first deep level tube line.

However, he wants the Metropolitan Railway answer.

Question 16 is Fleet Line. I also have proof in books.
It may be but its not the answer I'm looking for :roll:
That suggests that the "answer you're looking for" is incorrect, surely?
Its a HARD question because that is the idea of a quiz. No its not incorrect. Its just not the right answer :roll:
