    See how you fare. I got 27/32. One Q in there I think is a bit odd but the rest are the kind of facts you might learn in RE/RS which, at least in my day, we all took in secondary school.

    I got 28 out of 32 the only ones I didnt get where ones that seemed pretty specific to the U.S which hardly concerns me.

    The website froze and now even when I start again it always says 18/32 but I only got up to about 25. I got 28/32 in the end.

    I wouldn't have got any of the Mormon questions if it wasn't for the Amerian West unit in GCSE History.

    3. Do you happen to know which of these is the king of gods in ancient Greek mythology?

    Stopped after this. Yet another online "quiz" written by a patronising waste of human resources? Check.

    18 with a few lucky guesses in there

    Not sure why there is a don't know option though when obviously that can't be the right answer.. may as well just guess

    Yes I did do social ethics as it was called in my school. We didn't learn about the mormons or about the american rules on praying in schools and their constitution.

    Yes I am (apparently) - 25/32... although I am an atheist so who knows what's really happening there! I kinda screwed up the end about the American bits and bobs.

    Kinda unfair that I had to answer questions about the USA.

    Edit: I am intrigued, what was the neg for?
