Try Again?
According to the test results, it seems that you are not really familiar with modern history and what is happening in the 21st century. The possible reasons for this are that you have not really been updated on what happened in the world during this period, or that you have already managed to forget many things that happened during it. Since quite a few important events have taken place in this century, which began relatively recently, we recommend that you learn about them at least on a superficial level. Alternatively, you can try again...
Good Job!
According to the test results, it seems that you still remember quite a few events that took place between the year 2000 and the present day. So while you may not be familiar with all of them, you are certainly familiar with those who have stood out and been burned into the national and global consciousness. We encourage you to learn more about it and expand your knowledge, as well as continue to follow current events.
Incredible!
According to the test results, you seem to be familiar with the events of the 21st century that, although they took place recently, have already been forgotten in certain places. We wouldn't be surprised if the reason for your knowledge is that you have spent the last two decades updating yourself from the various media, and have become a historian on your own behalf!
