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.

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 HR generalist Emily Mulholland.

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

What’s all this about all of us needing a booster seat? Is there a baby explosion coming? Couldn’t a married couple get by with just one seat? What’s that? Booster SHOTS? Well, that’s different. Never mind. The Slate News Quiz remembers Emily Litella, played by the great Gilda Radner.
