That is just blatantly wrong. Change it! I don't care if this is the "easy quiz" if you know Attack of the clones over Empire Strikes back (The Worst vs best in my opinion) then you don't deserve to be rewarded.

Moses is not Christian. The 10 Commandments is in the old testement, which has rules for: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. The New testement is for Christianity. It is also an easy answer if you are good at history.

If you count up all the people in the world who grew up in countries that were either majority Muslim/Christian/Jewish or where there was a sizable Muslim/Christian/Jewish minority, I think you would get over 5 billion people. Maybe if you're from China or Japan you might not have heard of Moses.

While we all learn in school to type "Mt. Everest" when the question contains "Mountain + big", that is not always correct. Mauna Kea is known as the "tallest" mountain of the world. Further, the summit of Cimborazo is the highest point of the Earth (closest to the sun and furthest from the centre of the Earth). Mt. Everest is just the location where the air pressure at ground is minimum.

Oct 10, 2016
Yeah, and that's the thought process most would go through when solving a quiz with the title "Easy General Knowledge 1".
+1
level 14
Oct 11, 2016
You are correct that Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain, However Chimborazo is not the highest above sea level, with an elevation of 6,263m, compared to Everest's 8,848m. Chimborazo is simply the point on the earth's surface that is furtherest from the earth's centre, due to it's location along the equatorial bulge. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimborazo

Technically, the "second" movies was Attack of the Clones. That is the second episode in the series. Empire Strikes Back was the second movie "released". Although everyone still should get it, I think you should clarify the question. Also, Mauna Kea is the tallest Mtn on earth. Here's an analogy. If Shaquille O'Niel was standing in a pool and Michael Jordan was standing on the pool deck, Shaq would STILL be the tallest person. Just because he is in the water does not change the fact he is taller than MJ. This question should either have the answer changed or re-worded to highest above sea level.

The tallest mountain on Earth is Mauna Kea; Mount Everest is just the highest. People would get mad if you didn't put Everest as the answer because this is an easy-answer quiz, but please at least accept Mauna Kea as a type-in.
