Break down of the answers:

Guessed 49-96%: 3 super-famous rivers, plus another that accepts one of the first 3 as a type-in.

Guessed 9%: another river that is only famous for being famously so polluted it inspired the creation of the EPA.

Guessed 8% of less: a bunch of rivers most people have never heard of before... though... I should have gotten the Pasig River. I've walked past it many times and it is indeed absolutely filthy. To the point where it seems inconceivable that it would rank below or even be in the same category as some of these others like the Mississippi or the River Jordan.

Aye thanks for playing! Yeah it's a pretty difficult quiz, but I guess the main point is for people to learn about how dirty these rivers are and how people around the area are dealing with it.

The site I based this quiz off of used other studies which determines how much plastic, littered objects, and other man-made rubbish are contained. You can check out their site with the link in the description
