Think you know high energy physics? Take the arXiv vs. snarXiv quiz.

The quiz: arXiv vs. snarXiv :smile:

Harry, you might find these interesting. :wink:

I did not know just what was going on about taking the test. by the time i realized that i was actually taking the test i was through 15 questions. So i kept going to 100. I don't know how many questions there are, but i was getting tired of guessing. Out of 100 questions it was almost a complete guess on 100 questions. I got 61 out of 100 right, which put me at an undergraduate. So apparently it is not that hard a test, especially for those who are familiar with scientific terminology, which i am not! At least i did better than a monkey :!: But they did not say if it was a trained monkey or not :!: But i do like bananas :)
