I wonder what I missed

Props again to Jen, who must be having a slow day at work today. (Yes, one could rightfully suppose that I too am having a slow day at work today. But that's a given, isn't it?)

You paid attention during 91% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

Wow you are smart. I only got 74%

68-84% Pretty good, you know that there are libraries and newspapers, and you remember what you've read. You were a child that wasn't left behind!

Okay, I got 86%, but when I tried to figure out which ones I missed, discovered the highest score possible was 97%. I'm way too worried about this, but I think I must have missed the age or gender questions.

I got 86% so I'm not sure what I missed. Still I had to think about the triangle question for a moment! Duuurrr...:)

Lynellen, I'm guessing the difference is that I love Shakespeare, so that one wasn't an issue for me. :)

Gwynne, CalTechGirl got 100%, so...not sure about the 97% thing. Of course, missing the age bracket might not be bad.

Michelle, LOL - the triangle one was unfortunately fresh in my mind since I just actually used sin and cos in my job. Who knew that could actually happen. Bleh!

Because I'm a goober, I went and fiddled with answers til I figured it out. One I think was a trick question, the other I legitimately didn't know.

Iran is NOT an Arabic country. (I thought it was - now I guess I need to figure out what the definition of an "Arabic country" means - cause I thought they spoke some form of Arabic in Iran. That said, I will also excuse myself by saying that I don't think we ever studied the Middle East (well other than ancient Egypt.))

The one I dislike is the "Immaculate Conception" referring to the conception of Jesus or Mary. Jesus was the one was conceived in the Immaculate Conception - which is why I selected that answer. However, they're saying that the term applies to Mary's Immaculate Conception of Jesus. So when a woman gets pregnant...that's her conception? I would've thought her conception took place when her parents got pregnant. Anyway. There you have it.
