I'm guessing the test was oral rather than written? Probably one section on mulch, another on compost, others on weeds, insect pests, chlorophyll production, attracting pollinators... for a small fee I'd be happy to administer such a test each year in my own garden, and I could use it as a marketing tool. I'm envisioning an ad campaign aimed at mothers promoting smarter veggies for smarter kids.

Are sweet potatoes and normal potatoes averaged in together?

Potatoes are dumbasses but I've known some very intelligent sweet potatoes - much smarter than a lot of the people I've met in pubs on Friday nights

Potatoes aren't unintelligent. They just tend not to value education as much as sweet potatoes who, let's face it, are very arrogant tubers.

Typed "turnip" with a smile on my face, knowing full well where it would show up in the list! BINGO!

FWIW, I am fairly sure my brother-in-law is part turnip.
