You scored 17/32 = 53%. This beats or equals 80.1% of test takers -- With 22/32 beating 95% of people that is difficult. That means 95% of people are getting a grade worth a D+ in the US or lower.

I'd like to see Americans try to guess any numbers to do with any other country's government.

I can guess those numbers just as well as I can guess numbers pertaining to American government. In either case I doubt it would be very entertaining to watch but if you really want to...

You do realise that there is an entire world out there who knows nothing about the ridiculous specifics of US government, right? You should spend more time familiarising yourself with the rest of the world, rather than the other way around.

A one word reply referencing this person's intellect would probably be more apt, but, I'm just curious, is British parliament (I'm sure this is what you mean by "the rest of the world") made up of Pokemon, now?

ctleng76, how sad it is depends on who is taking this quiz. If the majority of test takers are voting age AND in the US maybe it's sad. But there are a lot of people in the world who don't need to care about that number.

You can also be a completely knowledgeable and informed voter and not know that number. I certainly am. It's not useful at all to know the total number of electoral votes.
+1
level 75
Sep 8, 2015
Agree that outside the US, there's little need to know or care. For US citizens, especially if you're claiming to be a "completely knowledgeable and informed voter," you definitely should know the number of electoral votes (and also, where that number comes from - which makes it reasonably easy to guess), and perhaps even more importantly, the number required to be elected president (270).

Wasn't sure what it meant by degrees in a pentagon. I tried 108 (thinking exterior angles) and 72 (Thinking interior).

There definitely is some information missing in this question it needs to be changed. 'Degrees in a polygon' doesn't mean anything in itself. I think it is worded that way just so that the question doesn't take 2 lines.

Or maybe many non-americans ? The imperial units are weird for european SI users you know... furlong ? fathom ? stone ? US gallons and pints and fluid ounces ? No idea about those...

Americans don't normally see imperial pints or stones, either. Aren't those British units? Same with furlong and fathom unless you are into horse racing or boating.

"Degrees in a Pentagon" needs clarifying - interior (540 deg) or exterior (180 deg) angles?
+3
level 77
Oct 22, 2014
Actually, the exterior value is 360° and is the same for every polygon, since it simply amounts to the angle you turn when you go once around it (one loop = 360° indeed).

How annoying is that having 1024 bytes in KILO byte? Normally that means 1000 so it's understandable that people wouldn't get that.

If you ever did anything with computers, you should be able to get that. And I don't just mean jetpunk, but learning about how they work.

May 22, 2016
As there are 8 bits in a byte the Kilobyte is then 1024 made up of 128 x 8 ........... 128 = 16 x 8 etc...... all multiples of 8 (binary code)

Thank you, Malbaby. Now it makes sense to me.

level 52
Jan 5, 2017
Actually 1000 is more correct than 1024. They used to make a difference by using a big or a small 'k' (kB being 1000 bytes en KB 1024), but that was confusing, so a new word was introduced. Now technically 1 kilobyte (kB) is 1000 bytes and 1 kibibyte (KiB) is 1024 Bytes. Since in reality the old value of 1024 for 1kB is still widly used, I can agree with that being correct too, so both should be accepted in this quiz.

What surprises me in this type of a quizzes is don't people guess at answers at all? I wouldn't know of the top of my head the number of letters in a greek alphabet, but the normal English one has.. ehm.. somewhere around 25-26-something? So okay, the Greek might have a couple of more or a couple of less. How long does it take to guess numbers between 20 and 30? And only 45% either knew outright or guessed. What did 55% of the quiz takers do?

I think the fact that the vast majority of measurement questions ended up with less than 50% getting them right goes to show the absurdity of non-metric systems. I'm assuming at least 50% of site users are US-based? To me these numbers suggest that even people living in countries using these measurements find them difficult to convert from one to another.

I like the idea and some of the questions, but I have to say it is quite US-centric, including your units of measurements. Guys, switch to the metric system, seriously.

The answer for the kilobyte question is wrong. The correct answer is 1000. 1024 would be 1 kibibyte. See here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilobyte
