This is truly freaky!

Take this quiz. If you're like me you'll be amazed. I'm sure there's an explanation. If anybody know what it is, please post.

Well I guess I am one of the 2% as I did the quiz twice, with 2 different answers, and none of them were Denmark,Kangaroos, or oranges, just lucky I guess, or I use my brain more, which one I wonder. But then I am not really good at naming Countries, Places yes, Just Countries absolutly NOT

No matter what number you pick (1-10) when you multiply it by 9 and then add those two digits together they will always equal 9. So you letter than corresponds will always be D.

Denmark is the only country, or at least popular country that people would think of that starts with D. Kangaroo and orange are also going to be the most popular things to pick. If you had time to think before answering then you may come up with other things, but because the instructions tell you to answer quickly then most people will come up with those choices.

Suspected something like that. I guess that's why when I picked Dubai, iguana and apple, I was not among the popular answers.

Buck, go to their HOME page and do the "Freaky Online Card Trick". I don't understand that at all.

your explanation makes a lot of sense GB-but it was still fun to do
