    Default Can You Pass A Basic English Test From 1950?

    English majors, rise up.
    S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
    A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
    Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
    Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
    Non torno vivo alcun, s’i’odo il vero,
    Senza tema d’infamia ti rispondo

    YOU ACED IT!

    You aced a basic English test from 1950! Only 5% of Americans can score this high. You must be well-read and very intuitive. You think for yourself and always trust your gut.

    Let us know in the comments if we’re spot-on!

    I want to know what they mean by aced though. 100%? 50?

    That would be more helpful than just an arbitrary pat on the back for taking the time to show the skills of being even partially literate

    I aced it as well, though I did have to google synonyms to refresh my memory if it was same or different
    And, had they asked me to spell that word, I would fail it every time. Same with "guarantee" (but ha!- got it first try this time )

    I was VERY confused about the math one. I pulled up the calculator because my first answer wasn't there. If you divide 20 by half, then add 30, you should get 40. Then, it hit me that they probably meant .5

    It was, but it contains questions involving common errors that I see quite frequently.

    Why is there math in this english quiz? Divide 20 by half, and add 30? Isn't that 40? This is a trick question.

    I also Aced it...despite my laziness with my spelling and grammar, I know a lot of weird grammar rules.
