10/10 Good Quiz but may I suggest:

Not having two answers that are true

The invasion of the Indo-Aryans was in 1700BC not AD. 1700AD is like when Jamestown was having its 93rd aniversary, unless you are using a calendar other than the traditional american calender based off of Roman teachings

Otherwise everything else is good, also I notice this quiz was posted rather recently so welcome to the Jetpunk family.

Firstly, Aryan theory is wrong, it was created by the white colonisers to gain supremacy.

Secondly, there is no such thing as the "caste system" when it comes to Hinduism. You can talk about varna, in which Dalits (untouchables) do not exist and there is no such thing as a higher or lower caste. Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas, and Shudras are equal, just with different skill sets. The hierarchy was again determined by the British to gain more power through their divide and conquer strategy.

I would request that you change these answers as they are not only incorrect but also paints the wrong image of Hinduism.
