It's broken. Every right answer tells me it's incorrect. Good thing I only missed one. (weight on mars)

I got 8/10.
I missed the max wind speed on Neptune and the weight on Mars (I probably would've gotten the one about Mars if I had thought about it a little longer).
If I took it again, though, I bet I'd get all 10


ETA: My mother got the same score I did. She even got the same ones wrong that I did. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

I scored 9 out of 10 too. The one I got wrong was the weight on Mars question

Scored 80 percentage.


Mixed the planet with rings question, and the mars weight question lol.

I went against my quiz set-up-instincts and resisted the easy 1,500 mph winds on Neptune, for people used to and good at taking tests, that one screamed to take the 1500.

The Neptune question is not a fair question because the wind speeds have not actually been determined. Scientific observations of white clouds going around Neptune's Great Dark Spot is where any wind speed is sited, and that is not the planet as a whole. The question is a bad set-up question when siting a specific area and generalizing it as a whole. That would be like measuring hurricane speed on earth and applying it planet wide. There's always a smart ass making these thing.

The rest required little thought.

In light of the fallacy question I got 9 out of 9.

That quiz was so easy that I have given myself a bonus point. So that's 11 out of 10.
