...on the other hand it wasn't really important to ask for these tips, since one of the rivals missed the correct answer only by 1.

Results: at home, sorry. All I know is the point's distribution: 4-4-3-2-1-0.

The 159.7 m tall Lincoln Cathedral (England) was built in 1300, but it collapsed in 1539. Two other cathedrals were also over 150 m, both were destroyed (by lightning strike). So the title was inherited by Strasbourg Cathedral with it's 142 m height.
