Believe it or not, I only got four questions correct. I was surprised at the range of the questions in which many of the stories I was unaware of considering the media has been completely focused on the death of Osama bin Laden. These were interesting questions, and I now realize there is a magnitude of interesting events going on in the world. I hope you all do better than I did.

At least Mr. Palo got 4 correct. I only got half and I mean 2. It is very interesting that so many things are going on around the world. We wouldn't even be able to even discuss all the tings going on in the world in class. I just grateful that we were able to discuss the things we did. It truly opened my mind.

I also got four right but honestly I guessed on most of them until the end. I noticed the most absurd answer were the right ones so I began choosing the answers that were out of the question. Some interesting topics were brought up that probably would never cross my mind.

WOW, this Quiz just showed me that i know pretty much nothing about this world we live in. I got a score of two, wasn't satisfy with it so i took it again and got a 6 but thats only because I remember the answers. I don't understand why the leaders of countries wouldn't inform their people about this things. what caught my attention was a question that said, "What country just bought 100 tons of gold to be use as an alternative reserve to the U.S. Dollar?" got my attention because it was mexico! i mean, that country has a lot of problems with their people leaving to find a better life in another country but yet their government wastes the money they could us on the economy to buy gold. what is this gold going to do for them?

Okay, so i only got 2 questions right!I was hoping to get at least 5 right. I honestly thought, "oh i got this", after the first question. I obviously need to be more informed about world news. Some of the stories actually seem pretty interesting. I'm DEFINITELY going to take time out to be more informed about what's going on in the world.

Okay, so I got one right, and that was the last one, and that was a guess. I have never even heard of most of the topics these questions were talking about. It is surprising that all this stuff is going on, but then again, its not shocking that we haven't heard of any of it. I mean, the only thing on the news for the past week has been the death of Osama bin Laden.

I got 2 out of the 10... I think it some questions were weird like being charged for sorcery i believe one of them was. I think it shows how there's ALOT of different things going on in the world that we don't focus or even know about.

i feel smarter than mr palo(:
i got 5/10 right
the reason could have been the fact that i hear little things on the news and if they interest me then ill go back and read the article throughly

Emily said...

yea i got 4 right (: i was hoping to do better but im glad i at least got as much right as palo. But i see now that i need to be more aware of whats happening in the world around me. some of the question i didnt even have a clue what the answer would be and just had to guess ha but the ones i got right i new exactly what the answers where the second after i red the question so thats good to i guess. but from now on im going to watch the news more.

haha i think everyone got 4. well majority of us did. i got 4 of 10 as well. this just proves that i know pretty much nothing about us. haha. i listen to NPR and yet, i still got a 4 of 10. i think we should get an average score of 8 or higher to be a well informed citizen, We need to keep up on times or the media needs to release more info.

I sadly only got two questions right. These questions really did have a wide range. I apparently need to watch the news a lot more. I had no idea that there were dogs even used for the raid. It was an intriguing quiz though.

Okay I totally SUCK at this . I got2 out of 10 correct. womp! But it really doesnt surprise me because I really didn't know anything about this. The questions they asked didn't seem difficult, BUT in the end, I didn't get a good score. Maybe if I knew a little about this I would probably get a 60% or more. -Takaua Tupou. Perod-1

Ryan Starke said...

All I can really say is that quiz sucked. I got two correct. How am I supposed to know that those people were charged for using sorcery? I mean who the heck uses sorcery? Oh well at least now I know that I am not the person to go to when it comes to world affairs cause I have never heard of hardly any of that stuff.

*Sparkles* said...

I did horrible on the quiz. I only got 2 correct. I obviously don't know much about what is going on around the world. The questions were pretty tough too. I know I don't keep up with what is going on in other countries. I guess I am not an informed citizen.

my score is a 3 of 10. i do not think that i am an informed citizen but i think that i am starting to become one. i am actually surprised about what i knew and what i didn't know.

Honestly i took the test and some of the questions were hard like the one talking about no security so what protects them was the grace of god. its nice to know that they believe that much in god but i just think that there is still some need to be protected by someone. well i scored 7/10 and that just because i guess im good at guessing. i guessed on a couple and got them right. thats the fun part about that but its interesting to have learned a couple new things that are going on right now.
