Test yourself against others in your age group for your "News IQ". I had two wrong. Had I taken a few more seconds to look more carefully at the DOW chart I would have had just one wrong. Oh well, I still ended up in the top 98 percentile.
I guess that's not saying much for the "randomly sampled adults" that the scores are based on. :eek: ;) :) Give it a try. There are only 13 questions and takes only a couple of minutes to complete.

Without looking up the answers, I scored 13 out of 13. Better than 99% and same as the top one percent. Not bad for a High School dropout between 18-29!

To be fair I guessed on the Dow Jones and the population pyramids, but I would call it an educated guess. Looking at the age dispersion, it made sense that people don't live very long in that country(No Spoilers, LOL!).

I gave it a go and to my surprise got 10 from 13, apparently that is better than 85% of the US population!

To be honest some of the answers were guesses, not being a US citizen I didn't know some of the people pictured, but other questions could be answered with a bit of deduction.

13 for 13. I did kind of guess on the pouplation pyramids and Dow Jones chart. The pyramid was kind of an easy guess, by age and the countries shown. Dow Jones I took a chance on, but knowing how the stock market has been over the last few years I figured it had to be the right one.

Those are the exact two that I missed. I really would have had the Dow chart had I just looked at it and thought about it a bit longer. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it. You're welcome.
