Science and Technology
Knowledge Quiz

 

Do you know more about science and technology than the average American?

 

Take our 13-question quiz to test your knowledge of scientific concepts. Then see how you did in comparison with the 1,006 randomly sampled adults asked the same questions in a national poll conducted by the Pew Research Center and Smithsonian magazine.

The analysis of the findings from the poll can be found in the full report. (No peeking! If you are going to take the quiz, do it first before reading the analysis.)

You answered 11 of 13 questions correctly.

 

:(

 

 

Which gas makes up most of the Earth’s atmosphere?

You answered "Carbon dioxide"

The correct answer is "Nitrogen"

 

What gas do most scientists believe causes temperatures in the atmosphere to rise?

You answered "Radon"

The correct answer is "Carbon dioxide"

 

 

I guessed radon because I already used Carbon Dioxide.  I knew one would be wrong, or both.  I gambled and lost.

13/13.

Kind of sad if only 7% could answer all of those correctly.

Pretty easy. The only one I actually 'guessed' at was the "fracking" question (WTF is fracking?). I chose the right answer only because the right answer would require different means of extracting than the rest.

I guessed on zero. Maybe you should spend more time on the internet learning, instead of poorly trolling.

In defence of the people that didn't get 13/13, they are pretty busy right now trying to get minimum wage increased.  Cut them a little slack.

I find it really hard to believe that only 7% went 13/13.. I did, and I'm not really that bright.
