Game Time

I got an email from my Father-in-Law that had an attachment to take a test to see if you are smarter than a 5th grader. So if you have a few minutes take the test and post your results in the comments.

Play the Game.

I did take it and I got 15 out of 19 correct for a 79%. I will tell you that when I was in the 5th grade I might have only got 3 out of the 19 correct. I was not a great student but I tend to be able to hold on to info now. And the way I look at it my Father in Law who is a Wharton Grade only got one more right then me so it can't be all that bad.

Wow, I only got a 58%. I think I would have gotten around 80% had I not kept second guessing myself and changing all my answers, lol. Oh well.

cindy said...

um, 63% here...that's failing, right? No wonder I always get mad at that show.

I just don't like it when the kids are laughing at the adults for not knowing the answer...makes me want to smack em. (am I a sore loser?)

63% for me as well. I never was a good student. But I did have a good time!!

Renae said...

89%, hmm... maybe I should go on the show? :)

Jeff said...

89% too. Just missed two.

Same as you on the quiz, a couple of the ones I wouldn't have gotten right even in 5th grade. Prime numbers I may have known back in the day but forget it now, also the US Rep question technically has multiple answer.

I watched the first few eps of the show, but all those shows are tough to watch for me, too much build-up/suspense time wasting. When I DVR them they only take about 10 minutes to watch. Duel was an improvement on the format, but still not as efficient as a show like Jeopardy. Too bad Jeopardy's questions are way beyond me.

73%..... good thing I already got out of the 5th grade - I couldn't take the pressure of getting a C!

Pat said...

Pat said...

I'm gonna study and take it tomorrow.

10 right, but my American knowledge is not up to scratch. (Being from the UK)

Moose,

I got 18 out of 19. Not bad for an old man.

'em in a bar brawl....

I got 15 out of 19, same as you. But I only knew the Grand Canyon one because of Pat, and the Four Corners states one because I recently heard it on another quiz show and guessed wrong! I think I should re-do 5th grade. :-)

73% -- Oh, well.
