I took the test. I got 12 of 13 correct. I missed one. Which gas makes up most of the earth’s atmosphere? I answered oxygen, but the correct answer is nitrogen.

Nailed it. I guess I was wrong when I thought a lot more people would get them all right. This tells me a lot about the state of the schools in our country and what is more important to the average citizen.
What’s really astounding is seeing how few actually know what gas is the most prevalent in the atmosphere.

12/13. I don’t believe the earth is millions of years old, so I can’t answer that the continents have been moving that long.

I also missed a question,which one I know not.I attended Catholic school for grades K through 6 and was kicked out of public school mid 9th grade,for what I now know to be my failing attitude as regards political correctness.I am,you might say,self educated.But,to give credit where it is due,it is the unfailing dedication of the Nuns/teachers,early in my life,who inculcated in me a thirst for knowledge that exists to this day.
