    13 out of 13 correct, although I had to bite my tongue on the global warming question.

    Something is wrong with the quiz or answers page. The "results" said I answered three of the questions wrong when I really answered them correctly.

    Edit: I took it a second time with the same answers as the first time. This time it was 13 out of 13.

    When I got to the question page it told me to:

    "Forget it! You know nothing about science. Go back to cleaning out your closet."

    I did it anyway, and got 10. Would have scored 11, but changed my mind just before answering one of them.

    100%.

    One thing I noticed about the scores of most women. They scored higher than men in answers that required higher reasoning (why should you limit antibiotics, how should you test to see if a new drug works) but lower on the discrete facts. I think most women take fewer science courses or read less about science in general. That needs to change.

    I got an 80%. I was going to answer a couple a certain way then changed my mind only to find that what I was going to answer with the first time was right. Gah! I haven't had that kind of science since grade school.

    The one I got wrong was about gas that makes up most of the earths atmosphere. I said hydrogen and the correct answer is nitrogen.

    Number 13 is only half true as well. It is just as important in oil production.


    The key thing wrong with the global warming question is the word "most" - it ought to be a "few fanatics"
