I’m going to make this interesting today.
I am going to eliminate questions 4 & 5 due to an error on my part.
Question 4 ans. was e. Dutchboy, but I added Sherwin Williams and ironically, they bought out Dutchboy in 1991.
Question 5;
5. A bar used to hold the reinforcement on a beam

a. Web
b. Lateral ties
c. Tie bar
d. stirrups
Web was the correct answer, but I cannot verify it.
These were all taken from online quizzes. So I have to believe they are accurate unless proven wrong, which I can’t.
No one got any of these right anyways.

So to add a twist to all this, I will chose a winner from all the players based on a grade of 100% accuracy. Best grade over 80 wins.
So check your answers and tell me this is your final answer or I will use your first answer for a grade.

So forget 4 and 5.

I seen a reference to Dutch boy Phillipines. But Sherwin sold to aztra or actually ICI in 98

Just for reference LOL

Too tough for me anyway

I’ll stick with mine.

Here is when S. W. bought out other companies.
In 1980, purchased Dutch Boy Paints. 1990 Bought Krylon and Illinois Bronze from Borden, which enhanced its aerosol and acrylic lines. 1991 Bought Cuprinol, the maker of premium stains, liquid sealers, and other coatings products. In the late 1990s, obtained 16 businesses within 21 months, among them Pratt & Lambert and Thompson Minwax. The consumer and store segments weren’t the only ones benefiting from the company’s aggressive acquisitions plan. In 1996, Sherwin-Williams also bought Pro-Line Paint Company and Seagrave Coatings Corporation, enhancing its presence in the industrial and marine markets.
