A few fun quizzes – science, US citizenship & Arsene Wenger

I like quizzes, and I sometimes do ones I stumble across on the net.

Here are three pretty interesting ones that I did recently.

Are you scientifically literate?

Fun if you like science or want to see how much you can still remember. Quite a broad selection of topics, though a few of them are not much about whether you really understand basic science as whether you remember somewhat incidental facts or follow news coverage of science.

I scored 92%.

Could you pass a US citizenship test?

Interesting to see what kinds of things you are expected to know to qualify for American citizenship. Mostly it is history and politics. Some of the questions have a bearing on how the the US works and what is entailed in being a citizen, but some are a bit arcane and more like history trivia questions. Some of the questions are also answerable without knowing anything about the US specifically, for example by knowing which century WWII was in.

Btw, be aware that the quiz is from 2011. There are a few questions in it about who holds what office, and the answer might have been different when the quiz was set than when you take it. (At the time of writing this post, there hadn’t been many changes if any though.)

I scored 91% (IIRC). They didn’t say if that would be a pass, but I imagine so.

Arsène or Aristotle?

The answers are quite easy to guess without knowing anything about things that Arsene Wenger or Aristotle have actually said. Still nice bit of fun.

I scored 10/11.

If you do any of them, I’d be interested to hear what you thought of them!
