A Quiz From 1941

I love going through old magazines. I never know what I will find.

This morning I found a quiz. In a women’s magazine.

My reaction was one of some sadness. The average reader would be expected to get 5 or 6 correct. I was able to manage 6/9.

Yet how many of today’s Gen X and Gen Y people could manage that with the knowledge they have gleaned from today’s education system?

Don’t mind me. I’m just a grumpy old curmudgeon.

Go over the jump for the answers

The Australian Women’s, Saturday 9 August 1941

  1. Can’t resist a quiz……..scored 4/9. Hmmm.


  2. I didn’t know No. 6, and I got the last one wrong, so I got 7/9 … quite good if I do say so myself. 🙂
