Are you scientifically literate?
#1
Another quiz and one in which I failed miserably:

So I failed the first 8 questions and stopped.
There's a reason I never liked Math and Science.
#4
I got 3 out of the first 10 and called it quits.
#5
80%. I am doing physics / maths at college but I know very little about astronomy. I haven't had much exposure to it at college (or even at school) and I've never had the drive to read up on it. Also, I'm weak on biology. I also mixed up F = ma - I didn't read the question, I just picked the two numerical values out of the question without reading them and multiplied them together.

28 correct and 22 wrong... And a lot of the ones I got right were just lucky guesses... yikes!

#8
76%, (12 wrong). i'd forgotten the value of e, for example; and for some reason i thought it was carbon with the atomic number 8, and not oxygen; also didn't know the third type of rock (in retrospect, i have come across the word igneous several times before, enough to have been able to intuit the correct answer instead of my choice of 'volcanic' which was clearly stupid); or the meaning of -nimbus (meteorology has always been boring to me); also didn't know Venus was the brightest after Moon. didn't know the name of the dwarf planet or the Greek goddess it shares its name with; or the symbol for the coefficient for friction.

not purely a science test though. a lot of the answers were made explicit through cultural implications (offering Greek language reference really made the relevant questions easy even if you didn't know the answers).


good find.

16 wrong. There is a reason why I was a Humanities major.

80%
You answered 40 of 50 questions correctly
for a total score of 80%.

Questions that involved other planets fucked me up.
