Default Common Items Quiz

The average person only gets 7 right.

This is based on U.S. info, so use all lobes of your brain. This can be more difficult than it looks - it just shows how little most of us really see!

There are 25 questions about things we see every day or have
known about all our lives. How many can you get right?
These little simple questions are harder than you think-- it just
shows you how little we pay attention to the commonplace
things of life.

Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No looking around! No
getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or
computer!

Can you beat 20?? It is nearly impossible for any normal person to get higher than a 20 (The average is 7). Write down your answers and check answers (on the bottom) AFTER completing all the questions.

REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! BE HONEST!!! That means no looking at your phone or anything on your desk...

Then, before you repost this, change the number on the subject line to show how many you got correct.

LET'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU REALLY ARE. - If not, just
have fun!

Here we go!



1. On a standard traffic light, is the green on the top or bottom?

2. How many states are there in the USA? (Don't laugh, some
people don't know)


3. In which hand is the Statue of Liberty's torch?


4. What six colors are on the classic Campbell's soup label?


5. What two numbers on the telephone dial don't have letters by
them?


6. When you walk does your left arm swing with your right or left
leg? (Don't you dare get up to see!)


7. How many matches are in a standard pack?


8. On the United States flag is the top stripe red or white?


9. What is the lowest number on the FM dial?


10. Which way does water go down the drain, counter or clockwise?


11. Which way does a "no smoking" sign's slash run?


12. How many channels on a VHF TV dial?


13. On which side of a women's blouse are the buttons?


14. Which way do fans rotate?


15. How many sides does a stop sign have?


16. Do books have even-numbered pages on the right or left
side?


17. How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel?


18. How many sides are there on a standard pencil?


19. Sleepy, Happy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey, Doc. Who's missing?

I got 21, although I kinda think I should have gotten 21.83 to be fair.

4. I missed gold on the Campbell's label. I never eat that stuff so my answers were guesses anyway. I shouldn't get 5/6 credit here?

9. So close! I guessed 88.0 and it's 87.7. Damn presets have made it so I don't scroll down through that area of the dial.

12. C'mon, that's unfair. Who actually uses a TV with those things on it anymore? It took me a couple of minutes to even recall what you were talking about and then I remembered seeing something like that on my grandmother's old TV.

19. Sorry, haven't read that story in years, no clue who I was looking for.

Soup label (don't eat it), matches (don't smoke), FM radio (haven't used one in years), no smoking slash (!), channels, lug nuts, hot dogs (don't eat them), and merry-go-round.

16 right. I always thought that the way water went down a drain was dependant on which hemisphere you were in.

Yes. That it goes down one standard way is a myth (the coriolis effect is too small on such a small scale).
