Quizzes and such.

There are times when you need to quickly determine another person's grasp of a discussion topic, so you can figure out how indepth to get with the discussion. For most people, this is really difficult. So, to aid some of you, I have some quick, one question quizzes to determine a person's knowledge base on a particular subject. If a person can't answer the quiz correctly, they really have no business discussing the topic at hand. So, without further ado, here are the three I can think of:

Politics

If you can only do ONE of these, which is more important? Caring, or doing?

Economics

I buy a pair of shoes for $30. I mark the shoes up to $60, and you buy them. Who profits from this deal?

Sports

What statistic will give you the best idea of a team's chances of winning a particular game?

With all three of these quizzes, you can quickly determine whether or not the person you are talking to has ANY clue of the topic at hand. If the correct answer isn't given, then, walk away, and find someone who knows what they're talking about.

I'll give the answers to those questions in the comments in a couple of days. Feel free to put your answers in the comments, too, plus, any ohter one question quizzes you can think of.

Have fun! (I'm almost willing to bet that most of you won't get all three correct, and about half of you will only get one correct. But, that's just a guess on my part.)

Okay, thought of another one.

Problem Solving

What can you do to get any problem to go away?
