10/15 are false. Now for some math. If we randomly choose true or false, there is about a 15% chance of there being 10 or more false answers. So I'd say this is nothing remarkable.

I’d say this is as bad as a true or false quiz I made for my class where 66.7% of questions were not true, but that’d be a false equivalence.

Two years later, exact same result, although this time I at least realized upon getting the apples question wrong that it was because of Washington.
