End of year quizzes

If you want to know how well you followed current events in 2005, test your skills with an end of year quiz. I've found a few.

The BBC has a two part test covering the news and events of the year. (Part 1) (Part 2). My in-laws don't have the right software to do the test. Anyone care to take it and tell us the number of questions and how hard it is? I'll play when I get back to London on Thursday.

Next is the 50 question test in the Guardian. I got 38 out of 50. I wish I was at my home computer because I'd love to do a screen shot of questions 30 and 31. 35 might trip up gurufrisbee, hefe and others. ;-)

And if you are a lot smarter than me, King William's College on the Isle of Man has a 2005 General Knowledge Paper, a 180 question test about the year. I got 2. Anyone smarter than me?

For you business types, here is "The Five Dumbest Things on Wall Street: Year-End Quiz". It has 10 questions, but the answers aren't posted until Jan 3.

The CBC has a pop culture quiz. I did poorly. Guess I don't care who helps David Letterman make high ratings.
