Since the difference between myth and legend is not defined, it comes down to a guessing game that only the person writing this test can win. Almost all my wrong answers were due to myth versus legend. So, DEFINE YOUR TERMS!!!!!

Harder to define between history and fact, as in Ghengis Khan founding the Mongol Empire....if it's history is it not also FACT?

Myth and legend are not really different. I guess myths deal with deities and legends with historic characters. Plagues of Egypt are not documented history.

Difference I was taught a myth has absolutely no actual evidence. But legends had at least eye witnesses and a person obviously recording these actions.
