Claimed   50/50

You are incorrect. The question asked how many nanometers are in a centimeter. Not a meter. A centimeter is 10^-2, while a nanometer is 10^-9. Ergo there are 10^7 or 10,000,000 nanometers in a centimeter.

Psh. Tied, son.

Not all the answers are right for example a nanometre is a billionth of a metre not a 10 millionth.

Thanks Copasetic

Right wing, it had also  been addressed in a post at the top of the page... (Link)

What other questions were incorrect?

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything.

There are some very good scores coming in, well done to the full marks brigade.

Don't forget to leave an apple on my desk on the way out.

39/50!

I admit that in some of them I've been helped by the Greek references (unfortunately I don't know Greek, but I studied the basics at high school).
Anyway, it's sad that, while reading them, sometimes I felt a "wall" between my knowledge and what I remember now. Further, some of the wrong answers I gave were among the easiest of the test!
