Got all 11 right. #5 is a poor question. Medicare is the most from the list but we spend billions more for military and the Pentagon programs. Our country spends 14 times what the rest of the whole world together spends on their weapons and military. Just check the pie graph from the budget office.

For most Villagers I am guessing it was an easy test. Why, Because it addressed important current events. I scored a 10 which is probably average for a Villager.

Interesting. I knew as I went thru it I'd be disappointed if I didn't get at least 10, but aced it. Almost messed up the demographics questions on the end though..........

I got 9 right. I knew the answer to # 5 question but my brain said, trick question so I over thought it and selected something different.

Totally missed #11.

Omgod! I'm a news nerd. Got 11 right. (almost missed the one about sex, age and education, but I thought on it for awhile.)

Sounds like I'm about par with many of you: 9, missing the same ones as most!

It would be instructive, and undoubtedly disappointing, to see how our youngers might do: Especially, the 30-45 year olds; the college kids, and of course high schoolers!

I shudder to think...Only 12% of people in their 20's knew there were 13 original colonies, let alone be able to name them. If you have little knowledge of civics and/or history how can you be a knowwledge and responsible citizen

10/11 missed #6, the obese question. Marked the 50%. I guess I was only half right on that one.
