Online quizzes can be fun, but not always in the way the creators meant.
|You Passed 8th Grade Science|
|Congratulations, you got 8/8 correct!|
So I got a perfect score; I did in fact pass 8th grade science (about a billion years ago). However, I wonder if the people who created the quiz would pass! For example, here is a screen shot of one of their questions:
You tell me. What is the charge on a neuron? As you can see, I guessed they meant "neutron" and I was right. After all, neurons do pass electric charge!
Also, another question was poorly phrased. It was:
8. What causes the tides on Earth?
* The wind currents * The gravitational pull of the moon * The tilt of the Earth's axis * The speed at which the Earth rotates
While the gravity of the Moon is the main cause of gravitational tides, the Earth's rotation does play a significant role in tides.
So I got an A+, but I give the quiz writers a C.
Tip o' the propeller beanie to Ian Musgrave for this.
