About This Quiz

General knowledge is a funny thing. Everyone has it to some extent. Some people have a broader scope of general knowledge than others. Why? Well, those who have a huge score of all-round knowledge will definitely be avid readers.

Reading is the number one way to increase your general knowledge. By consuming everything you can, newspapers, books, using the internet, you can improve your general knowledge massively. 

And that's what people who pride themselves on their general knowledge-ability, do. They read, read, and read some more. 

And take tests!

So that's what we have prepared for you here today.

This quiz is going to see just how much you know about a range of general knowledge subjects ranging from space to earth, to history, to science, to geography. Even cars and planes but no trains!

Out of 35 questions, if you can get 25 right, you would certainly have done very, very well!
