When I saw this quiz, I thought it was the next step of general knowledge. There's easy general knowledge, and then there is general knowledge so easy a primate could do it.

This is the first quiz I've come across that Dem Rep of Congo hasn't worked for that country. And I left the "s" off of Homo Sapiens -- face palm moment.

Wow, I never knew that Sapiens was the correct term. I've been saying it as Sapien all my life. I also thought that a group of monkeys was called a "troupe", like a group of musicians. I actually learn a ton from this site.

HIV is just the virus, the question is asking about the disease. So even though AIDS is an accepted answer it should also show as the correct answer. HIV should stay accepted.

That's because the theory of Evolution has mountains of evidence to back it up. Intelligent Design is an absurd fairy tale proposed by a few books.

Exactly. The question is meant to be interesting since most people think that HIV originated in the late 20th century when in reality it has been around much longer.

Sadly, a tale is not one of them. After it wasn't accepted I tried other things then moved on. Face palm moment. (I never used to mix those up. Just another of the joys of aging.)

If someone who doesn't know the word "simian" (and thinks it has something to do with literature) can still get 18/19 on a primate knowledge quiz, then the quiz is probably too easy.
