I blew a lot of them but then, I would have failed the test to get British citizenship as did most of my (well-educated) British friends.

No 5 is a bit sneaky. I wonder how many people said 30? Many years ago I taught in a school in an area where they still had the 11+ exam and the children in the top year had to practice on past papers. One of the papers had the question "True or false: February always has 28 days?" All the bright children (and I) said "True" on the basis that February always does have 28 days - it sometimes has 29 but it always has 28. We all got it wrong - the officially correct answer was "False" because of the leap year. A nasty one, that.

What age range are 1st - 5th grade?

First graders are usually ages 6 to 7, fifth graders are about 10 to 11 years old.

Missed 16 and 18.

I glean these sets right off of the "Are You Smarter." Foxworthy show..............

have researchers who are a lot better paid than me.............
