Matt Marchione thinks the capital of Florida is Miami. When told what the capital actually was, the freshman biology major was not only surprised that it was Tallahassee, but that the question was supposed to be considered common knowledge.
Have you ever been writing a paper and start to second guess yourself about even the simplest of grammar rules? What about geography? Did you know that the conversion from cups to quarts could be done without using Google?
Sometimes the simplest of questions can stump anyone. We put together a list of questions that may seem simple enough for a first grader to handle. After asking people to answer these seemingly simple questions, however, it was evident that even well-educated college students have trouble figuring them out.
Our video highlights some of the people who took our quick quiz and they’re responses tell the entire story. From simple geography questions to sixth grade math problems, you might think you can pass this quiz but give it a try and see for yourself.
Here were the questions we asked people to answer:
- What is the capital of Florida?
- Solve: 6÷2(1+2)
- What year did World War I
- How many cups are in a quart
- Vinny’s camera or Vinnys’ Camera
