You might have answered some trivia questions on a road trip with some friends, but in this educational quiz, we're going to explore more about your intelligence level! Oh, and try not to use any textbooks or Google searches either!

Random trivia questions are a great way to gauge how intelligent a person really is. After all, such questions exercise various parts of the brain, so think of this quiz as training for your mind! And if you're not good with answering trivia questions, we'll give you a hint: try using context clues! Such clues are typically included in the question itself, so remember to read each question (and all of the answers) very carefully. You can also use the technique known as "process of elimination," which will show us how logical you really are. This method is used to get rid of any answers that you know are incorrect. If you can narrow your answers down from four to two, then you have a 50/50 chance at answering the question correctly! And if all else fails, try using your natural intuition to guide you (instead of logical techniques). So if you think you're a pretty educated person, try acing our random trivia quiz now!
