  1. 9 out of 10. #6 is a bunch of bologna! How is that accurate? Tap water doesn’t taste better then bottle water. In fact tap water tastes nasty compared to bottled water and filtered water. You got your facts backed up by a source? If so can I see the exact source…?

  2. I got 6. Fun quiz, but the answer to question 9 is a little ambiguous and I very much doubt that tapped water tastes better than bottled in any case study, unless of course that study is run by a water company. I would never ever drink tap water and anyone who does is frankly ‘tapped’ in my opinion, pardon the pun.

  3. 4/10, but I think that some of the answers will depend on which country you are referring to. For example, I have had bottled water in the United States and the United Kingdom, and there is a world of difference between them, just as there is depending on the particular mineral springs in the UK from which the water is derived.

  4. Great quiz. Although I have to disagree with question 6 and 8. Your tap water might taste good, but here it tastes dirty, it is milky looking from the tap, and has a really bad taste. You can even smell it. I tested it one time and the bacteria levels were in the 3000’s. Worse than toilet water.
