About This Quiz

Are you an avid Trivial Pursuit fan? Do you find yourself answering all the general knowledge and trivia questions on TV gameshows? Do you know the capital of Turkey? Well, then without a doubt, you are in the right place.

What is general knowledge? Well, although its a term we hear often, it is quite difficult to pinpoint an exact definition. The average Joe doesn't really care too much about trivia or have a general knowledge base. It's just not that important in their daily lives. Yet for people like you and me, well we thrive on having an expansive general knowledge, knowing what's going on in the world around us. And that's in a broad sense, taking in a range of different subjects, for example, from politics to sport, science to geography.

General knowledge is about following what's going on in the world around you. But its also knowing things about the past. No matter what definition we give trivia or general knowledge, to truly test it, you need a quiz such as this.

Here you will face a range of questions, covering a wide variety of trivia subjects. They span different times, themes and ideas. How do you think you will fare? Will you pass with flying colors?

Well, the only way you will know is if you scroll down to begin the quiz! Good luck!
