PUT ON YOUR THINKING CAP!

The average person only gets 7 right.

This is based on US & CDN info, so use all lobes of your brain. This

can be more difficult than it looks - it just shows how little most of

us really see! There are 27 questions about things we see every day or

have known about all our lives. How many can you get right?

These little simple questions are harder than you think -- it just shows

you how little we pay attention to the commonplace things of life.

Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No looking around! No getting

out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer!

Write down your answers and then check your answers (on the bottom) only

AFTER completing all the questions.

REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! --- BE HONEST!!!

That means no looking at your phone or anything on your desk...Then,

before you pass this on to your friends, change the number on the

subject line to show how many you got correct. Forward to your friends

and also back to the one who sent it to you.

LET'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU REALLY ARE.

Did this quiz originate in Canada? I very rarely see Canadian currency, I don't know what's on their coins! (Of course that only explains 2 of my wrong answers
)

I got those wrong too... I missed the one about the dime, so that I didn't even answer, and I put "leaf" as the answer for the other one...
