There are millions of people around the world who have dedicated more than a dozen years of their lives to education. From elementary school to high school, students spend their time honing in on grammar skills and math concepts. Semesters are dedicated to the different eras in history from the American Revolution to World War II. Science starts off simple with earth science before branching out into the different subjects of biology, chemistry and physics. Most of this knowledge will prepare you for higher education, but what about general knowledge?
Let's use the example of math. Knowing the derivative for the natural log of a function wouldn't be considered general knowledge, but knowing how many degrees in a triangle would be! While you might find general knowledge facts within all of your curriculum courses, what about the knowledge you're not graded on? Outside the classroom, you'd find a world of current events, technology, sports, entertainment, and more. Without the help of a textbook or the Internet, could you ace this quiz on general knowledge?
Who is the founder of PayPal? What event took place on December 7, 1941? Where would you find the painting of the Mona Lisa? If you can answer these questions, you're ready to ace this quiz! Put away those textbooks and click out of Google Chrome or Safari. Let's go!
