181. Even still, shouldn't that make us question the test?
I took it for a parental custody battle in high school, and I was shocked at how crazy it was. The general info section was easier than our Quiz Bowl questions, so that part was easy, but what if a teen hadn't studied all that stuff yet? Then, the other tests were such that, if you practiced them, you'd do better. How is that a test of intelligence? It's smart to practice them? I've questioned that test ever since.
