This is interesting: the travel site Travel all Russia has a timed test you can take to find out just how well you know everybody’s favorite “Родина Мать” [Motherland]: Russia IQ test – how much do you know about Russia? All you need to do in order to take it and try your knowledge about this mysterious yet adorable country is to enter your first name, last name and e-mail. Don’t forget that the test is timed! Yes, that means you won’t have any opportunity to google the questions! I did it and even though I shouldn’t be too proud of the results, I still am. A little bit. After all, the questions aren’t too easy (not all of them, some are though):
Total number of questions: 20
Correct answers: 18
Your Russia IQ is close to perfect: 126
Level: Ph Russia
Your command of Russian history, traditions and its culture is impressive. You probably know that word borsch does not suppose to have t at the end. You probably agree with us that claims in the news that Russia is a petro-dictatorship are a long-shot. For your remarkable expertise, we award you an official degree of Doctor of Russia! PS: You can tell your friends to call you Doctor now.
I think I just might try and make my friends call me Doctor now!
What results did you get? What do you think about the test? Too easy or far too difficult?
