You answered 13 of 13 questions correctly.

13/13, easy as hell. The only question that could have been difficult to people would be the fracking one. Because it's a "big thing" in the US, but not really a common word and that common an issue for many other countries, so if you're not a native English speaker I could excuse you for not knowing what fracking is.


Also, one I took about half a year ago, which you may also want to give a try, I think it's a little bit harder. But that's personal opinion.

Well yea besides that question it's a basic science literacy test, getting anything less than 12/13 is mind boggling.

What did you get wrong?

Please don't say you though electrons were bigger than atoms... even though atoms are made of electrons, neutrons, and protons.

9 out of 13.


This coming from an individual who recently gained a hatred for physics and biology but still managed to ace biology.

Just realized that I have the lowest score of the people on here.

:unsure:

Whatever, memorization of sciencey facts does not determine one's intelligence.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to continue breathing in nitrogen and absorb x-rays from the sun while relaxing on my island that doubles as a boat because that's what humans do.

Oh? I could see which ones I had wrong?

And yes, I thought atoms were smaller than electrons. In my defense, I never had any of that stuff in school

PARTY HARDER.

Re: Quiz time

i got 13/13 as well but i guessed a few of them

Re: Quiz time

Thu May 02, 2013 2:16 pm

I got 13/13, it's scary to think only 7% got that.

Re: Quiz time

Thu May 02, 2013 2:21 pm

7% of the sample in the USA. To be fair, they have made an article of why are the results on the news IQ quiz so different on the internet. Let's just say the "test sample" was not pristine to begin with. And the internet society is of a somewhat different composition than that.

My roommate's laptop couldn't load this and porn at the same time, so I just went with porn.

Ah that makes sense.

To be fair, fracking called "Å‚upkowanie" here, gets huge news coverage where I live, so I had easy mode on the question considered most tough for non-native English speakers.

Re: Quiz time

Thu May 02, 2013 2:46 pm

True. Then again, to make that connection you'd have to know or deduce that Å‚upkowanie=fracking.

On "News IQ" I had 11 out of 13. Didn't recognize the guy in question 8, not gonna say who, since someone else might want to take the quiz too. Also didn't know which state legalized sama sex marriage in 2012. For a non-American I'd say pretty decent.
