Time to test your China knowledge!
The Christian Science Monitor has a short but fairly comprehensive online quiz testing readers’ knowledge of Chinese history, geography, economy, culture, and demography.
I got 18 of the 21 questions right. See if you can do better.
It looks like the quiz was originally written in 2011. Some of the questions have been updated, but I would argue that Question #16, though correct in 2011, is now wrong. For more on the issue posed in Question #16, see https://notwhatyoumightthink.wordpress.com/2015/01/19/news-you-really-need-to-see-the-chinese-century. (It is interesting to note that an economic benchmark forecast in 2010 to be surpassed in 10 years actually took China only four years.)
Let me know how you did.
