About This Quiz

Do you know how much you really know? There are certain facts and figures that everyone takes for granted, but how accurate are they? Even more often, things get lost or left unexplained all the time because people just assume everyone knows them. This can lead to mistranslations, miscommunications and a lot of things just slipping right through the cracks. Sometimes, people don't even know what they don't know. 

General knowledge is the basics that get taken for granted by most people. No one thinks they have to teach them or pay particular attention to them.  From math to science to literature to even art and pop culture, there is a lot that everyone just assumes to be correct, whether it is or not. People do not question these supposed truths, but some of them are far trickier than meets the eye at first. Some things have been repeated for years and even for generations, contributing to confusion rather than illumination. Do you have what it takes to walk the winding road between fiction and fact and come out on top? 

If you think you are general knowledge savvy, tease your brain and put it to the test with this colossally huge general knowledge quiz!
