  • I got 19 too. I wasn't sure about the religion one. I picked Islam, which is #2 (1.2 billion to Christianity's 1.9 billion, according to one stat I found). Oh well.

    Interesting that Americans, Italians, Canadians did well on this question, and Mexicans did very well. Sweden, Japan, France, UK did less well. It seems a lot of people just picked what they thought SHOULD be the most popular religion. :-)
    • Wow! That's the question I punted on too. I knew that Islam has over a billion followers and I assume Hinduism and Buddhism are around the billion mark too. For some reason, I didn't think Christianity was over a billion at all. Weird.

      Those numbers are interesting. Does it give some context to the War on Terrorism? I don't know, but it is an interesting side note.

      • Got 16/20 and failed this question too -- also the first question about demography of USA, and the one about El Niño. That's strange, only 15% of French people got this question right. Apparently we're less directly concerned by this than Japan...

        The fourth question I failed, was, to my shame, the tenth of the survey. I really need to learn to distinguish my left hand from my right hand now.
