This mind-blowing and fun general knowledge quiz has 20 different easy and hard trivia questions to challenge your friends and family. Only real-deal geeks can score higher than 80.
This General Knowledge Quiz Is About, Well, Everything
The questions have various topics. But the primary subjects are wildlife, countries, science, and fun facts. Here is what you should know about each category.
Some of the general knowledge quizzes will challenge your information about wildlife. Animals are strange. We have a long way to understand their nature. However, we already know so many interesting things about them. For instance, we know that snails can sleep for up to three years! Here is another one, bats might hunt 1,000 insects in 60 minutes.
Some of the public knowledge questions on this page are about countries. We live in a global village. However, not many of us care about what other countries are up to. So, if you score high for such questions, just know that you are special.
How many bacteria live in our body? How much skin do we lose in our lifespan? Does it rain on Jupiter? These are all questions you need to answer on the general knowledge quiz. But do not worry if you do not know the answers. Look for the clues to figure out the right answer.
Does the US currency have $20 coins? Are jellyfishes immortal? What does Jeep mean? Our funny general knowledge quiz has so many questions to scratch your brain. (And if you know the right answer, then the joke’s on us).
Things to Know Before Taking the General Knowledge Quiz
QuizExpo is home to hundreds (if not thousands) of fun trivia quizzes. They are educative, kid-friendly, and competitive.
It is an Educational Trivia Test
You see the correct answer right after answering each question. Plus, you read the extra information about the facts in the reveal box. That is why the general knowledge test is informative. No matter which option you choose, the reveal box teaches you something new about that topic.
It Is a Kids-Friendly Quiz
You do not face cumbersome words, mind-bending ideas, or sexual content on this quiz. That is why it is 100% kid-friendly. The questions are not easy-to-answer. But they are easy-to-understand. Moreover, we included a clue in each query so that everyone has an equal chance to find the correct response.
You Get a Score
QuizExpo’s general information quiz is score-based. Each query has a specific value that affects the result. The highest score is 100, and the lowest is 0.
How to Create a General Knowledge Quiz in 5 Steps
To create your own quiz, you need to follow these steps.
Step #1: Gather facts.
Go to MentalFloss.com and open their Amazing Fact Generator. This tool offers random fun facts every time you press the “More Facts Please!” button. Select 20-100 facts. Then categorize them into specific groups, such as sports, movies, TV shows, animals, etc.
Step #2: Turn facts into questions.
If your fact is, “Giraffes have the longest tongues among animals,” the question should be, “Which animal has the longest tongue?” Or “Do giraffes have both the longest neck and tongue in the world?”
You can either create ‘true or false’ or ‘multiple-choice’ questions.
Step #3: Set scores for each question.
One simple method to score the queries is by dividing 100 by the number of the questions. For instance, if your quiz has 20 queries, each should have 5 points. (100 % 20 = 5).
Step #4: Create reveal cards.
Create a sheet or a dock of cards that reveal the correct answer. Everyone wants to know what is the correct choice—and why.
Step #5: Make It an Interactive Quiz.
Printed quizzes are way more fun. However, if you do not own a printer, create an interactive Google Form. Go to your Form’s setting, and under the “Quizzes” section, turn on “Make It a Quiz.” Now you can enter your questions, create multiple choices, and identify a score/point for each.
How to Make It More Fun?
Taking a general knowledge test is entertaining. However, here is how to make it even more exciting.
Comment your score
Less than 40% of the participants score higher than 85. So, commenting your points is an enjoyable way of showing off your information. Let’s see who is the boss around.
Take it with a friend
Send the link to a friend and ask them to take the quiz as well. Then reveal and compare your scores to see who is the geekiest friend. You can also set a time limit to make the test more challenging.
Share the results
The general knowledge quiz result is only available to you. So, it is 100% private. However, you can share it with others by clicking on the share buttons at the end of the result page. It might heat things up and expose your competitors who would like to try to outsmart you.
Hold a contest
Share the quiz link with a group of friends and ask them to take it simultaneously. Next, compare the scores and choose the winner. (It is best to ask for screenshots to make sure no one is cheating!).
How to Play?
A trivia quiz comes with right and wrong answers. You receive one point for each correct response—but no negatives for the incorrect ones. Take your time and read the questions carefully because some might be trick questions. Choose an option and lock it in by tapping “Next.” Lucky for you, the trivia quizzes have instant results. You see if your response was correct immediately. (Green is good, red is bad.) Even better, you can learn more about the topics with the “answer reveals,” the fun-fact snippets that appear after each question.
