People might not have realized that it's the English alphabet. For example, there are 29 letters/characters in the Swedish alphabet.

Of course anyone would understand that it's the English alphabet the question is about. So, even though the quiz is very hard, I'm surprised that not everyone got the number of letters, degrees in a circle, dozen, planets and US states.

Baseball games and feet in a mile got me. ARGH! How is anybody outside America supposed to know that? - On the other hand *VERY* surprised about the low percentage on "square meters in a hectare". It's metric, so it'll be a 1 and then as many zeroes as required. Since the quiz will cut you off just add zeroes till you got enough. Just go metric already and at least 6 questions with the randommost answers would've been history :P

My nursing anatomy class taught me there are 212 bones in the human skeleton. (And we had to memorize each and every one.) Many medical books include the six ossicles - three in each ear.

80 bones in the axial skeleton (28 in the skull and 52 in the torso) and 126 bones in the appendicular skeleton (32 × 2 in the upper extremities including both arms and (31 × 2) in the lower extremities including both legs. 80 + 126 = 206. This includes the 6 inner ear bones.

Google is inspired by the word "googol" but is spelled differently. Otherwise it could not be a protected trademark,

I thought there were about 160 games in a baseball season, so I tried 164, 166, 168. If only I really believed it and tried all of them, but it was only a vague idea in my head that it was such a huge number compared to other sports.

I thought a shilling was 12 pennies? Or was that the old unit and now 5 pennies are called a shilling for some reason?

The question is shillings to the pound, not pennies in a shilling. The shilling doesn't exist anymore, there are just 100 pence in a pound sterling now.

I thought the Monopoly answer was wrong, but then I realised the answer was probably American. (Incidentally, the British board has 38/39, depending on whether you count Jail and Just Visiting as one or two).

No, it has 9 spaces on each side and four or five at the corners (depending on how you count Jail), just like the US board.

It should say 'amendments to the US constitution' instead of just 'amendments to the constitution'. There are many other constitutions in the world that have been amended!!

I understand people not getting English measure - even in the US - but the clue with meters was the least answered? Type a 1, hold the 0. It'll pop up. By the way, it's 100 m by 100 m.

Everybody's still taught the metric system all the time in school. Everything is by 10s is common knowledge. Everyone knows how big a liter, kilogram and meter are even if things are still done in randomly made up units.

it extremely surprised me only 75% knew how many letters there were in the alphabet, weirdly enough the amount of people that knew how many digits a creditcard had was not far off (I have never seen one in my life btw) Also quite surprised at how low the % was for the numbers of bones. Ok it is not something you would expect everybody to know, but on this site I would have expected it to be atleast 50% (and definately more than the % of people that knew how many golfclubs are allowed in a bag)
