Merriam Webster Quiz

Merriam Webster Quiz

A ten word ten second per word timed multiple choice game.

Take the quiz and post your best...if you want, most important: post the words you tripped on.

Quote:
You'll have 10 seconds to answer each question.

The faster you answer, the higher your score.

The harder the question, the higher your score.

I'm addicted to this...I just got my high score nine of ten! First try today, but my stupid slip up was: Cognitive! Damn it I let the timer get to me and I missed out on my first perfect score! Stupid stupid stupid!

...and on an easy one!

Final Score: 3400 Points!

The average score is: 2470 points

Bastar...!

Don't post your correct answers in case they recycle for other players...

Damn it! I've taken it twice more and speed is killing me...that's my story, I'm sticking to it.

On the second try got a 10/10 with a score of 3800.

Bombed a few, the most annoying ones being the times I misread a word. Missed a few good scores because of that!

Looks to me like the highest score possible is 4200.

It also provides average scores based on age. Rock on 60-somethings!

Teens: 1860
20-somethings: 2280
30-somethings: 2490
40-somethings: 2640
50-somethings: 2770
60-somethings: 2880
70 and above: 2750

3960. Not bad for a non-native, I'd say.










Good intuition helps... and fast reflexes.

No lie. I just tried it again and got 3700 points. 10 out of 10 again. (But I admit that two were essentially guesses.)
