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.
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 senior managing producer of Slate podcasts June Thomas.
Can you ace the quiz and beat Thomas? Good luck!
It’s not unusual to find a Jaguar, a Rabbit, or even a Barracuda in a parking garage. In a Vail, Colorado, garage, however, they found a young bull moose. Authorities were able to safely extract the animal without the aid of moose expert Boris Badenov. This week’s Slate News Quiz is your chance to be Mr. Know-It-All.
