  1. You got 6 out of 8 right! Great quiz again Gina! 🙂

    Well done! You have plenty of common sense!

    You are clearly an individual of above average intelligence, and thus you have a great well of common sense from which to draw upon. You’re in the top 75% of the population for cleverness, and, amazingly you can improve your common sense by just thinking things through a bit more.

    1. Peanuts do not grow on trees.

    2. The month of July exists in every country, even though the holiday they call ‘4th of July’ does not.

    3. February is the only month which ever has 28 days in it.

    4. If he is living he can’t be buried anywhere.

    5. A white house could be anywhere, but THE White House is located in Washington D.C.

    6. It was not Moses who built the ark, but Noah.

    7. Her house was one-storey high, so she had no stairs.

    8. An evergreen tree has needles rather than leaves.

  2. You got 2 out of 8 right!

    Unlucky! Common sense is not your forte!

    Perhaps you lack a bit of common sense, when it comes to solving problems, but that’s probably because you are a person whose genius is more artistic than logical. But the good news is that by taking quizzez like this you are giving your mind a real common sense workout.

  3. You got 8 out of 8 right!

    Congratulations! You have Perfect common sense!!

    You have so much common sense, it’s hardly fair to call it common. Only the top 10% of humans can answer the logical problems as well as you can. Your problem analysis is top notch, and you have a real knack at wading through distractions and tricks to get to the heart of the matter.

    What a fantastic quiz!

  4. I got 8/8. To be honest it’s a tad easy if you are used to quizzes or IQ tests similar to this. Dawn is right all months have 28 days always and not just february. Although I think you probably lost your answer in translation. Plus question 4 is not strictly right and is open to interpretation. Why can’t a living man be buried anywhere? He could be living in the US, then murdered and buried in Canada. He could be buried in a sustainable coffin and held for ransom. He could live in the US but be buried in a mud slide while visiting Canada. It would also be better to say ‘Bungalow’ rather than ‘one floor apartment’ for question 7. Just a few options there for you :o)

  5. 7/8. I don’t agree with your answer to 5. There is no copyright on house names, so if you want to call your own house The White House you can do so – and I know of least one such example that is a long way from Washington! In other words, more information is certainly needed!

  6. You got 2 out of 8 right!
