Lunchtime Trivia Thursday July 5th

Thank you for joining us to play Lunchtime Trivia today where we put your mind to the test on what kind of subject Canadians have trouble with!

 

The question of the day was: When it comes to knowledge of this subject, nearly 2/3rds of Canadians can’t pass the test. What was the subject?

 

The answer was not surprisingly a bit of a challenge: General knowledge about Canada

 

According to the results of an ipsos poll:

“Overall, 62% of Canadians failed the quiz (0-15 correct answers), 9% got a “D” (16-17 correct), 14% got a “C” (18-20 correct), 8% got a “B” (21-23 correct), and 8% got an “A” (24-30 correct), passing with flying colours. Even among those with a university degree, 54% failed while 46% passed, with an average score of 14 out of 30.

 

The quiz contained six questions on each of these five topics: arts and culture, geography, sports, history and general knowledge.”
