Do you use Wikipedia? What’s your opinion of it? Have you ever believed information and later discovered it was false? What happened?

The content of this quiz is good! But maybe it could be possible to turn down the volume of the opening jingle a bit. When I listened through my headphones those saw-tones hurted a lot. So that could be a point for improvement.

But otherwise: Good!
Thanks!

Hi pkk_highschool. OK, here's how it breaks down.

  • Then, in turn, ... (adverbials)
  • ... the original Wikipedia entry ... (subject)
  • ... references or quotes ... (two main verbs, joined by 'or')
  • ... the article ... (the direct object of 'references or quotes')

The word 'references' is a verb here. It can also be a noun, though, so it may look like the subject is 'the original Wikipedia entry references ...'. But that's not right in this case.

Does that help? :)
