Pop Quiz! Rate the States!

1 Oct

                                                        Which #s Belong Where?

     I have to thank another blogger (thanks INSIGHTFUL) for this idea but I have restructured some of her post in the form of a quiz just for fun. We all love America. This is where I have lived all my life… and very happily I might add. I have some complaints but who doesn’t. I’m quite sure that no place is perfect but I also must admit that I have never lived anywhere else so I am ignorant of what life is like in other places. In education though, we like to test and measure and create teams and have competitions so it is only fair that when thinking about our country we should also be willing to hold our accomplishments up to others and see how we stand.

     Are we (the U.S) more like the Superbowl champs in this category or that category or more like the…you know…the team on the other side of the river? (Actually on the same side of the river and in the same stadium!) Why don’t they just start calling them the NJ Jets for crying out loud and get it over with?! But I digress…

      In this quiz you get the following numbers and have to place them in the boxes next to the appropriate category rating the United States’ standing in the world compared to other countries. Here are your numbers.

(15, 16, 27, 30, 31, 33, 35, 37, and three 1’s)

So, where does the United States stand in the world when it comes to?

These stats come from The 2012 Global Competitiveness Report which is a yearly report published by the World Economic Forum.

(Look for the answers in my next post and see how smart you are and how successful the U.S. is in each category… If you root for the NJ Jets then your rating abilities are probably pretty screwed up anyway)
