    Hmmm. That's fun that the test is different every time you take it.

    Got 7 out of 10 on the first test; 10/10 the 2nd time (all but 2 of the questions were different). Had NO idea what a vibraphone was!

    Can't wait to have hubby take it! I got 10/10. Love multiple guess questions. Can usually do quite well on those.

    Not sure...are you clicking on the answers right?

    I would have to argue the one that says Whitney Houston is a singer; fire siren, maybe, singer, no...
  8. by   OzNurse69
    YES i'm clicking on the answers right -- I may be blonde, but......!!

    PS the options for the Whitney question were (from memory) singer, Broadway star, dancer, film star -- no option for "none of the above" so I just went with my closest guess.

    Well Oz, I just don't know what's wrong...I just took the test and it worked fine...did you register?

    During the Panama War, didn't we blast some sort of obnoxious music at Noriega to drive him nuts? Maybe we should blast WH at Saddam...I'd be crying uncle in a New York minute if someone did that to me...

    7/10 the first time, 9/10 the second time.

    It worked fine for me both times, OzNurse. That's strange that it didn't work for you!
