1- What is World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand's rating and world ranking?

2-Who is the oldest Grandmaster in the world top 100 and what is his rank and rating? (Hint: No he is not Vassily Ivanchuk. He is from Germany)

3-Who is the oldest rated woman chess player in the top-100 and what is her rank and rating?

4-Who has been ranked world #1 most times and how many times?

5-Which country has the most number of Grandmasters in the world... oh no! that's way too easy. Yes, it's Russia ;) So, how many GMs does Russia have and which country has the next highest number of GMs? Tricky?

6-In the women's category, China has the highest average rating of 2479 with 30 GMs and 23 IMs. But, which country has a whopping 215 Grandmasters and 495 IMs among women chess players?
