Test your knowledge of this week’s big stories.

Welcome to Slate’s weekly news quiz. It’s Friday, which means it’s time to test your knowledge of the week’s news events. Your host, Ray Hamel, has concocted questions on news topics ranging from politics to business, from culture to sports to science.

This week’s contestant is Josh Levin, Slate’s national editor and the host of the One Year podcast, our new show on the people and struggles that changed America—one year at a time. This season, which premiered Thursday, focuses on 1977, a year when the nation’s rules seemed on the verge of getting rewritten. Listen and subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.

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