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 editor Allegra Frank.


Can you ace the quiz and beat Allegra Frank? Good luck!

UPI posted a story about a rabbit eating plants in a Walmart garden center. That’s the whole story. That’s news? Now if the rabbit pulled out a pocket watch and commented on the time, or flew at the customers and bit off their heads, THAT would be news. Things are a-hoppin’ in this week’s Slate News Quiz.
