About This Quiz

Many people pride themselves on their trivia and general knowledge skills.

And it's not only one of those things that come in handy down at your local trivia night. A good general knowledge and a strong trivia background show a deeper understanding of the world around us, of events past and present, of politics or even economics.

Having a good general knowledge isn't just about knowing about things that interest you but also have a good idea of what's going on in subjects outside your frame of reference. It's about hearing a fact that catches your attention and pulling it out of your brain some point further down the line when needed. In a nutshell, it's knowing lots of facts and being able to remember them.

In this quiz, we are going to test your general trivia knowledge to the limit. A wide range of questions about many different subjects will have you scratching your head for answers! We have U.S. presidents, authors, sport, geography, TV, music, and war. In fact, if you can think about it, there is probably a question relating to it in this quiz.

But you know you have them, so let's see if you can ace this.

Good luck!
