Yep, they are getting harder all the time!

Wow, who knew there would be so much information available! This is the fifth quiz in a series of many now, and more to come.

As I dig deeper into the subjects, I am finding the information to be more challenging. Even devising the questions gets harder because I have to first make sure I understand the data before I can create a logical question.

The questions for Quiz #6 are included at the end of this article, but you won't find the answers here. The questions are merely to aid in preparing for the next quiz if you are so inclined.

Science, history, geography, social studies are all included in this test.

Good luck folks!
