This quiz amused the hell out of me. I hope it does the same for you.
Edited to add: In comments, Mike H points me (and you) to this even better quiz, which seems to have been the model for the one I linked to. Enjoy your day.
Try the original:
Mike H: Oh! I wish I’d known about this before I posted. There goes the rest of my morning….
For you guys much smarter than I – on Steven’s original quiz I am stuck. Is the answer to 7 A or B?
Dave, yours is a fair question: 7 is pretty ambiguous. The answer is B.
Excellent puzzle! Enjoyed it tremendously! Thanks!
Did the one Steve posted. Liked it alot. For some reason I can’t open the original one. Clicking on the questions prompts a “what program do you want to open this with”
Jonathan: It’s a plain text file. You can open it with whatever you use to read plain text.
Is there some explanation for 20? I guess you could say all four have a relationship with weather, but it’s hard to describe, just like the relationship between standardized tests and intelligence.
But I’m not satisfied with that. It’s not just a mystical relationship. Higher test scores are very clearly correlated with intelligence. Similarly, a low barometric reading is correlated with storms and wind. Of course, the change in the barometer is what matters, but a low reading still means it’s more likely than usual that the barometer fell recently, so the expected wind is higher than average.
Maybe it’s correlated with low temperatures or latitude – I don’t know about this one. But there is no reason to expect a correlation with longitude – any small correlation that exists would be a coincidence of geography and choice of prime meridian.
