Units of measurement – we use them all the time, usually without even thinking about it. Though the USA and the UK are still using premetric units, the rest of us have, for the most part, moved on. This quiz will measure your knowledge of units, both metric and nonmetric; it will plumb the depths of your memory, and weigh up the results! Feel free to share your results in the comments below. Have fun ?
This is Part 3 of a multipart quiz. You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

Hi, Nice
I took your quiz when you first published it and couldn’t make comments, hope this
goes through! Only 6 correct!
This came through loud and clear, Carol! 6 out of 13 is a scraped pass 🙂
Very informative
Thanks 🙂
You got 9 out of 13 right! Great.
This was a lot more challenging than the previous ones but I enjoyed it. Minim and firkin were new words for me and loved some of your options.
I’m happy to hear you enjoyed 🙂 Minim I knew previously with a different meaning : a halfnote (two beats) in music. In this case it is a standardised ‘drop’ used by apothecaries. Firkin figures largely in the FFF system, which, although humorous, uses only real units: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FFF_system
Very interesting quiz bro. 11/13.
Very nice score, Hamza – well done!
Interesting quiz as always. I got 9/13 right. I’m glad I can leave a comment now.
