Grammar quiz from the 1980s is so
difficult most people only answer HALF
the questions correctly... so do
YOU think you can do better?

Daily Mail (UK), by Keiligh Baker

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/23/2019 5:44:09 AM

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

Seriously? This is "difficult"? I got 100% but am shocked this is even thought of as difficult.

Click bait.

I agree with reply #1; Where is the difficulty? I got 20 for 20

Perhaps the only people they tested it on, were journalists?

Not difficult, but in all reality almost all the questions were wrong, as they capitalized the answers for words in the middle of sentences.

If it´s true that no one in the study were able to answer more than 10 of 20 we are raising imbeciles.

SAD!

Practically anyone born after 1980 has no idea how far the standards have fallen. A high school education in the 50´s surpasses most current college degrees.

Expected a challenge. But I´m in the generation that learned how to diagram sentences and had weekly spelling tests. Agreed - click bait.

My daughter recently graduated from college. She learned cursive from my wife and enjoyed practicing penmanship and taking notes with fountain pens in high school. Several of her teachers enjoyed seeing a fountain pen in use. Most of her classmates could not read cursive. It won´t be long before teachers lack the skill.

I only got 19 of 20- said who instead of whom - went back and reread using another pronoun and yep I was wrong. That’s what I get for being cocky and breezing through it. However today’s youth could not pass....but they all know in kindergarten about people with two moms or two dads. My 12 year old grandson is very smart and reads several books a week. I think he will do well on this - plan to let him look at it over breakfast with me this morning. However he does not know how to read cursive. The only thing they were taught in cursive was their signature. But they are told they cannot pray in school or bring a Bible there. ??

The Sisters of the Sacred Heart would have me diagramming sentences and taking snap spelling quizzes after school.

But first we would have to clean erasers/erasures...

Simple. Got all twenty with no hesitation. Anyone well versed in English grammar and spelling should have no problem with this rather basic test. Those who score below 50% didfn´t receive much of an education in the language.

Too easy and 100 percent for me as well. And, fulfil is the British "variant" of fulfill. So many people use loose for lose, and "he could care less" is also very commonly misused. Even though I´m a writer and editor, I admit that I sometimes have to look up the proper use of who and whom from time to time. The sentence in the quiz was too easy, though. Call me nerdy, but I still enjoy diagramming sentences.

They should have used phrases which are most often misused in everyday speech.
One of the things that most annoys me is the misuse of "less" and "fewer".
Another is badly used pronouns "me and her" for example, instead of "she and I".

Perfect score but then I was educated before the 1980s when schools and teachers were real.

We didn´t know any classmates who had two mommies or were not sure if they were boys or girls. God and the flag were always in the room.

I agree with most of above. Embarrassingly easy, but I am old. Graduated HS in 1967, had a war bride mother who made us read chaucer and shakespeare. She thought American public schools were an intellectual joke back then. What would she think about them now? I dont care what supposed experts say, the past tense of plead is (like read, "red") plead, not pleaded.

20 for 20. Spelling and grammar were my easy As. But we studied them all the time. In the summertime we took our books home, an older girl ran “school” in our neighborhood (lots of kids and few traveling families), and we studied some more.

Misspelled words stand out from a page like dropped stitches in a sweater.

One has to be old enough to have studied English in grade school to do well on this test. Even what I just wrote is incorrect, since it should read ´To do well on this test, one has to be old enough to have studied English in grade school.´ I have no idea what any school teaches today, whether it be grade school, high school, or college; however, the point is the reader may not know the grammar is misused if the meaning is clear. In today´s World, it makes no difference, as the youth use their own shorthand and minorities their own languages.

A group of armed Mexican soldiers disarmed and detained two US soldiers on the US side of the border near Clint, Texas on April 13th. Officials with US Northern Command told CNN that “The U.S. soldiers were appropriately in U.S. territory,” and were reportedly providing border support “in an unmarked (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) vehicle.”According to officials, the Mexican soldiers pointed their firearms at the two US soldiers and removed a sidearm from one of the US soldiers. The US soldiers allowed their weapons to be taken “in an attempt to de-escalate a potential volatile situation.” One of the

It found that these unions give 90 percent of political funding to Democrats.Democrats in California, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Oregon alone received more money from public unions than Republicans did nationwide."There´s a growing disconnect between how public unions are spending money and what workers actually want," Charlyce Bozzello, the center’s communications director, said.

The prestige press has some explaining to do — for subjecting the nation to a long, cruel ordeal named “collusion” and “obstruction.” Almost two years and millions of column inches later, special counsel Robert Mueller has revealed the theory that President Trump and his campaign conspired with Russia has been just that. All that remains of collusion and obstruction is the media’s shattered credibility. The errant reporters and pundits — the ones who peddled the most outrageous falsehoods — want nothing more than to move on. But not so fast: There has to be some accountability for the biggest foul-ups.

One stalwart ploy of leftist writers, commentators and artists is to attach the adjective American to the normal sins of humankind. American Racism. American Injustice. American Sexism. As if these problems exist nowhere but here or as if they were somehow worse here than other places. In fact, when looked at in context, the word American, when used this way, usually turns out to mean “less.” Less Racism. Less Injustice. Less Sexism. Indeed many of America’s faults and flaws arise from the high standards to which we hold it. After reading the Mueller Report, I came away with a similar

President Donald Trump’s housing agency plans to exclude illegal migrants from subsidized housing, likely freeing up more cheap housing for the many Americans who face rising real estate costs because of legal and illegal immigration. “Because of past loopholes in HUD [Housing and Urban Development agency] guidance, illegal aliens were able to live in free public housing desperately needed by so many of our own citizens,” an official told the Daily Caller. “As illegal aliens attempt to swarm our borders, we’re sending the message that you can’t live off of American welfare on the taxpayers’ dime.” (Tweet) “There may be

Following the horrifying fire that badly damaged one of the world’s great treasures, the mainstream media is pushing the storyline that the fire that ravaged the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was caused by an “electrical short circuit.” But the story in the Daily Mail lacks any evidence to back up that claim. A French judicial police official said investigators brought in to work out the cause of the inferno made the claims -- despite them not having been given access to the church yet for safety reasons. The official, who spoke anonymously about the ongoing investigation, said the monument

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued a statement Friday tearing into President Donald Trump over the Mueller report, declaring he was “sickened” by its findings. Romney wrote, in a statement posted to Twitter, that it was “good news” Mueller’s team found insufficient evidence to charge Trump with conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. “The business of government can move on,” he said. “Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,” Romney continued.

Trump,” Conway wrote in a Washington Post opinion-editorial. “Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.” The frequent Trump critic went on to argue that Mueller’s findings lay out how the president committed wrongdoing disqualifying him from the presidency. “The investigation that Trump tried to interfere

The Flyers wasted little time in following the Yankees lead. A day after the Daily News reported the Yankees had stopped playing Kate Smith’s 1939 recording of “God Bless America” in the middle of the seventh inning over her racist lyrics, the NHL’s Flyers made the same call. And took the extra step of covering a statue in her honor outside the Wells Fargo Center. “We have recently become aware that several songs performed by Kate Smith contain offensive lyrics that do not reflect our values as an organization,” the Flyers said in a statement. “As we continue to look

For the first time in Vatican history, the pope allowed for the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Catholic facility. The readings and prayer came as Pope Francis met with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Vatican City, a gathering designed to pray for Middle Eastern peace. A Holy See spokesman said the prayers were supposed to be a “pause in politics,” Breitbart reported. The pope said, too, that he hoped the interfaith prayers would foster peace specifically between Israelis and Palestinians, the news outlet said.

If you left a bait bucket -wrapped in a plastic bag- sitting in the sun for three days, the results would be be appropriate for Mitt Romney’s latest brand of cologne. WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said on Friday he was “sickened” by the dishonesty of U.S. President Donald Trump and people around him as portrayed in a report on Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 election.

Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said the Republican Party has become “a cult of Trump’s personality.” Schiff said, “I think we have seen a wholesale abdication responsibility by the GOP leadership, by people like Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell who essentially do whatever the president says. And that includes when the president wants to go around the Congress’ power of the purse. But it certainly includes issues of malfeasance, corruption within the administration. There’s been little or no appetite to stand up to the president in any meaningful way, and that really

There have been a lot of viral impersonations of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on social media, but none have been quite this hilarious and adorable. Wearing glasses and bright red lipstick, a young girl brilliantly skewered the freshmen congresswoman in a way that put the current cast of Saturday Night Live to shame. (Video/Tweet) “Like, I’m Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, and like, I want to talk about like, climate change, because like, there’s no doubt cow farts are making the climate change,” the girl’s rant begins. “Like, in July the climate was 96 degrees and in February the climate was 36

During an on-air appearance Thursday, CNN host Chris Cuomo said that he wasn’t “going to let” people say that establishment media outlets, including his own, were misleading the public on the Trump-Russia story. “I’m not going to let people say that, you know, CNN or the media, or whatever, have been creating a false narrative,” Cuomo declared. “This report is plenty of proof that the questions that have been asked repeatedly were legit and that the answers we were getting consistently were not, especially once you get past the line of, ‘Hey, are you a felon?’ Once you move past

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Thursday said that there was “passive collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings that conclude there was no conspiracy. Clapper began by defending the foundation of the Russia probe, telling CNN anchor Anderson Cooper that there was “good reason” for intelligence agencies and law enforcement “to be concerned about whether or not there was some kind of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

The voluminous report from special counsel Robert Mueller provides a deeply disturbing portrait of a candidate who welcomed the help of a foreign country to get elected and of a president who repeatedly attempted to undermine Mueller’s investigation. Now it is up to Congress and the American people to objectively digest the report and determine the fate of Donald Trump, who in no conceivable way has been exonerated. Over more than 400 plainly written pages released Thursday, the report provides a readable narrative that describes Trump’s eagerness for any help Russia could provide to help him win the 2016 election.
