You Have Forgotten...
You got a third or less of the answers right and that means it may be time to renew your basic science knowledge. After all, this is knowledge about how the world works, who knows when it might come in handy? Everyone should remember their science classes, so have a look at our answers to learn what you missed and learn some extra facts.
Good Job!
Not bad at all. You definitely remember most of your science lessons. However, due to the time that has passed since school, you may have forgotten some facts and that explains why you missed some answers as well. Have a look at our answers by clicking on 'show answers' and learn some new facts!
Great Job!
Well, you obviously remember a LOT of your science lessons! Good for you! Not only do you have a really good memory, but you have an attention to detail and probably a will to keep this information alive in your head and your understanding of the world. You aced it!
