Basic scientific knowledge quiz, if you get a single one wrong apparently you didn't pay attention in middle school.

I got 12/13 because I have never heard of the term "fracking" We learn it in England as "cracking" I.e. cracking alkanes to alkenes give smaller more useful molecules using the catalyst alumina, silica at temperatures of 600-700 degrees c

Hmm. But now that I think about it, is Fracking the combination of the fractional distillation and catalytic cracking? I should have considered that before making the answer. oees wells.

11/13

For my defense I have to say that I misunderstood some questions due to my lack in my vocabulary, so I had to think a bit. But Fracking was the only thing I had to look for because I never heard that term and so I had no idea what that was (and we never had that in school either).

I messed up with the chemical reaction, a pretty stupid mistake. I spontaniously selected sugar dissolving, but nail rusting was actually corrosion - I confused it. *facepalm*

Second question I got wrong was about how scientists test antibiotics. I thought they would give all testsubjects a sample, but I had no idea.
