QUIZ: Only 1 in 10 people know these letters of the alphabet! - The Beaverton

QUIZ: Only 1 in 10 people know these letters of the alphabet!

Let’s face it, knowing the letters of the alphabet is hard. We all know A and B, but what about those ones at the end? X? What’s that? And let’s not get started on that whole L-M-N-O-P stretch.

Only 1 in 10 people take this quiz and get all the letters right, so let’s find out if you are a alphabet genius! Remember, no breaking into a kindergarten classroom to look at the walls! That’s cheating!

1. Question 1: You probably thought we’d start with an easy one, but we are jumping right into the deep end! This letter, from the Greek alpha, is a vowel and is used in the words apple, aardvark and avalanche.
The cyrillic letter Kha
Too hard!
2. Here’s a hard one! If you know this you were lucky enough to be born with extra brain cells! It sounds like C, but it’s not. It’s the 11th letter of the alphabet and it rhymes with ‘stay’
It's K
I think a Chinese character that was in use in the Shang Dynasty, known as Whan
I’m going to keep going with Q. Eventually it has to be right.
Yikes! I give up!
3. Give up yet? The person beside you did, and they’re puking in the bathroom right now! Okay, you asked for it! Do you know this letter? It’s between the letters Q and S, and in some dialects you can ‘roll’ it.
It’s the letter R
I know this one because I studied dead languages at Harvard for six years. It is Thorn, from Old English runic alphabet, Futhark.
If the last one wasn’t Q, well then this one is surely Q.
Ooooowee! My brain is hurty!
4. Most of the people who started this quiz are now in the hospital or possibly dead. Which of the 26 letters is this? It’s the first letter in ‘Desk’.
For sure it is D
26 letters? I have a PhD in alphabetology, and I only know 23 letters. Anyway, the answer is theta.
Trick question. It’s Q!
Stumped! I wish I could get these questions, but only a real genius could and that is not me!
5. Last one! If you get this one you REALLY REALLY know your alphabet and should probably work for NASA or in a think tank or something! What is this letter?... W!
I know this! It’s W!
I have spent hours slogging through all known alphabets, living and dead, and could find nothing that matches this cryptic symbol.
Q! Q! Q! Q!
Oh boy. This quiz is too hard for me, just like it is for 90% of the people who take it. If I met the person who passed this quiz, I’d shake their hand out of respect and then punch them in the face from envy.
QUIZ: Only 1 in 10 people know these letters of the alphabet!
You got all of them CORRECT! Jesus Fucking Christ! Wow! I can’t believe it! Not only are you in the top 10% of the world population for alphabet knowledge, you are a candidate for mensa, favoured for a Nobel Prize, and you also have a winning personality and can keep a cool head in stressful situations. There are world leaders and CEOs of Fortune 500 companies dumber than you. YOU SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF YOURSELF. Go ahead and take the rest of the day off! You’ve earned it!
QUIZ: Only 1 in 10 people know these letters of the alphabet!
Too bad!
Oooof! Well, we are all good at something, and for you, one of those things is not knowing all the letters of the alphabet. There are 26 letters after all! That’s hard to remember! You know what, go ahead and take the rest of the day off! To study the alphabet!
