Welcome to a special edition of Slate’s news quiz. From now until Election Day, we’re offering a series of quizzes to test your political knowledge. First up: Your host, Ray Hamel, has concocted questions on what’s happened so far in the Trump administration. This is Part One of a two-part quiz. Check back tomorrow for Part Two.

Questions are multiple-choice, and time is of the essence: You have 50 seconds to answer, and as the seconds tick away, the question’s point value drops from 50 all the way down to zero, so you’ll want to click on your answer as fast as you possibly can. There’s no penalty for an incorrect answer, so feel free to take a guess.

At the end of the quiz, you’ll be able to compare your score with that of the average contestant, as well as with the score of a Slatester who has agreed to take the quiz on the record. This week’s contestant is politics editor Tom Scocca.

Can you ace the quiz and beat Scocca? Good luck!
