WHAT ABOUT YOUR GENERAL KNOWLEDGE?


You have 20 minutes to answer the following questions. You need a pencil and a piece of paper, you are not supposed to use other means of assistance.
You can guess, you should do it, because the result assumes that you get one or the other answer right by guessing. But you mustn't note more alternatives, than the asked amount. An example: if you should mention 5 of Earth's highest mountains, your answer shouldn't consist of more than 5 mountains.

The topics vary quite a lot and nobody i supposed to know everything. That means that you don't have to answer everything correctly, to get a good result.

All set? Good luck!
