Questions pretty elementary.You need something a bit more up to date, such as, Why were Dark Matter and Dark Energy discovered only recently? What is entropy?

I was a little disapointed about the ease of the quesitons. But, I still only received a score of 83%.

#9 There is no reason to believe the answer you say is right. . Would have required some assumptions. .

The answer you give for Question #9 is wrong, according to the information seen on/about the graph. I see no reference to sugar or food, except that by zooming out, I saw a very faint "grams of sugar" after the question, but not on or near the graph.

Perfect. But the one about cavities was unclear because I saw no units on tbe horizontal axis.

Had you clicked on the small 'x' in the upper right corner of the question field, you would have seen "Average sugar consumption (grams per person per day)".

Question #9. No label on X axis or Y axis. Assuming Y axis is numbr of cavities, and X axis in number of people, there is no data on use of either tooth paste or sugar.Therefore tbhere is no way to derive the "correct" answer.
