I got the sunscreen question wrong

In my defense I have never used sunscreen, so I have no idea... I thought it dealt with tan lines...

12/13 and I knew I missed it before I went to the next screen. Totally brain dead on the atmosphere question.

12/13, just because I didn't know what does "rusted nail" mean, and I didn't want to look for the meaning when I was doing the quiz. So in practice the only wrong answer I gave is the one about chemistry... if my teachers hear this they will kill me (I'm a chemistry student at the university).

However I've studied the most of those stuffs at the high school, and the others at the university. We did a lesson about fracking no more than a week ago, for example.

I got 13/13, which is not even that great compared to others within my demographic groups (college+ and 18-29).

lol at the stats for the atmospheric gases question.

70% of American college grads don't know that nitrogen makes up most of the Earth's atmosphere.

My. God.

13/13 Amazingly simple. But then I have a science background.

12/13 here.




I hate science so for me to do that well means I get to pat myself on the back.
