Can You Pass This General Knowledge Quiz?


Intelligence is commonly associated with IQ points but in reality scientists and experts of the mind have demonstrated that IQ points are only a measurement of how smart someone could potentially be. And ‘smart’ in this definition is denoted by memory storage. Furthermore, IQ is not something that is innate or born within you. For instance, you can increase your IQ points by performing certain activities.

Things such as reading a book, learning an instrument, performing exercise, and playing games like chess, Sudoku or checkers can do wonders for your mind.

Oh…and scoring perfect (or learning from your mistakes) on this quiz will help boost your IQ too.

There is no particular theme associated with this test, such that it can’t be labeled a ‘math quiz’ or a ‘geography test’ it is more of a general knowledge exam that judges how trendy, intuitive, and resourceful you are.
