Current events Test.

I received this in E-Mail

See how much you know about events that affect you, your family & everyone else

Report your score if you please, No Cheating

I miss one, the question on Islam

This is an incredibly easy test. It clearly indicates that the majority of Americans don't have a clue about what's going on in the world. It's astonishing that so many people got less than half right.
There are no tricks here - just a simple test to see if you are current on your information. This is quite good and the results are shocking. No wonder our politicians take such advantage of us.

Test your news IQ - Pew Research Center
I believe it was Winston Churchill who opined that " . . . the biggest argument against democracy is a 5-minute conversation with the average voter . . ."

I'm not sure about Michigan, but here in western Pa. this is the way we spell "your"

I guess I'll have to double check every post for spelling & grammar

I want to be perfect like the rest Wink

YOUR/YOU’RE



“You’re” is always a contraction of “you are.” If you’ve written “you’re,” try substituting “you are.” If it doesn’t work, the word you want is “your.” Your writing will improve if you’re careful about this.

If someone thanks you, write back “you’re welcome” for “you are welcome.”

Definition of YOUR
1: of or relating to you or yourself or yourselves especially as possessor or possessors , agent or agents , or object or objects of an action

Missed one. Got the political symbol wrong. Would probably have gotten the Islam one wrong but for Grizz's comment.

Is that cheating? LOL

Missed 2.
Instead of asking irrelevant info such as Who is this a picture of...what is this a symbol of?
How about, what is each American's share of the national debt?
Where do we rank in math and sciences knowledge compared to ...fill in country here... No
