About This Quiz

Two peas in a pod, a bull in a China shop, the calm before the storm, cut to the chase, a sight for sore eyes and barking up the wrong tree -- we say these phrases all the time, but do we know what they really mean? Some are easy to interpret, but there are also a few of them which cannot be understood solely by the context which they were used in.

These phrases exist all over the world and are used by people from all walks of life. They can be used as a response to virtually any situation, whether it be  to ask someone to do something, to express how you are feeling, in situations where you may be lost for words or during times when you feel like saying something that is less inappropriate. 

How well do you know many of the phrases which you hear and even say every day? Well in this quiz, we will give you a few of them to either respond to or interpret and when you are done, we will tell you which Disney princess you are most like. Will we get it right? There is only one way to find out!
