The rather difficult grammar quiz that 'only four per cent of people' nail.


We all love a fruitless reason to inflate our little egos. We don’t mind proving ourselves. We love knowing our basic numeracy and literacy skills are as good as ever.

Enter: A very basic, 20-question grammar test that, according to the creator, only four per cent of people will answer every question correctly.
