  1. I got 11 correct.

    But, for the first time, I caught you. Question 6 is incorrect. There were archaeological findings of Vikings in what is the US as of the 6th century. Making it correct to pick both as the answer!

  2. 11 our of 15. Not bad for an old French Canadian broad like me. But one question, Canada holds elections to elect his Prime Minister which in my mind is the head of state unless you still think of Queen Elizabeth as head of state or her representative the governor general… I am confused…

    • Thanks for the feedback, old French Canadian broad 😀 😀 I checked out that matter and the situation is that Canada is a “Realm of the Commonwealth” whereby it “is a sovereign state in which Queen Elizabeth II is the reigning constitutional monarch and head of state.” A total of 16 countries enjoy this status, including Australia, New Zealand and the UK itself.
      So, your PM is head of government, just like here, but not head of state. Our head of state is our president, who is elected but has no political power. We left the Commonwealth in the 1940s.
