How Smart Are You?

This little quiz came through on my chapter's email list so I don't know where it originated. It's fun and at times a challenge. Also please follow the instructions. You might be tempted to cheat. :-)
The average person only gets 7 right. This is based on U.S. info, so use all lobes of your brain. This can be more difficult than it looks -it just shows how little most of us really see! There are 25 questions about things we see every day or have known about all our lives. How many can you get right? These little simple questions are harder than you think. It just shows how little we pay attention to the commonplace things of life.

RULES! Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No looking around! No getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer! Can you beat 20?? (The average is 7) Write down your answers and check them (in comments) AFTER completing all the questions. REMEMBER-NO CHEATING!!! It doesn't matter if you cheat, actually, because if you have to cheat, then you don't know the answer, thus, you've already missed the question. BE HONEST!!! That means no looking at your phone or anything on your desk...

LET'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU REALLY ARE. - If not, just have fun! Here we go!
