Question types: General and thematic quizzes
There are two types of quizzes in this category: thematic ones and those devoted to real general culture.
Culture quizzes with which you can test your knowledge can be of two types: generic and thematic. The generic ones cover all subjects of knowledge, so you will find questions on topics such as geography, history, art, literature, philosophy and all sciences. Thematic ones are specific to a single subject such as geography and history, but they can be even more specific such as those on flags and capitals.
Depending on the topics you love most you can choose to take a quiz on geography or ancient history, maybe you prefer to take the one on biology or modern art history, or you want to try to test your all-around knowledge and challenge yourself with the generic ones.
As you see, you can choose the quiz game you like best each time and perhaps, as you go along, try them all so that you can improve your general knowledge by testing your skills.

We are constantly trying to supplement the quiz questions and add new ones to continually give you new stimuli and give you a chance to have fun in a smart way
The formula: general culture questions with multiple answers
The general knowledge test game consists of a series of questions that you will have to answer by choosing from a number of plausible multiple answers.
The way the quiz works is based on the classic multiple-choice question-and-answer structure that you have no doubt seen on TV or tried online, so the game mode is sure to be familiar to you.
The questions vary according to the type of test and are sometimes easy sometimes very difficult, but this depends on your general culture and knowledge. It will be a lot of fun to go through questions of various difficulties and types, because you will keep your concentration level higher and make the challenge more engaging.
We will offer you, for each question a series of answers to choose from, the number of possible alternatives is usually four, more rarely it will be two (this happens for questions that require a True/False type of answer). Be careful because sometimes the answers may divert you even though they may seem very trivial.
The subjects that comprises general culture
In theory it would stand for knowledge of all subjects of human knowledge, but in almost all cases it stands for knowledge related to subjects that are usually categorized into scientific subjects and humanistic subjects.
Before defining humanistic subjects, let's take a step back and talk about Humanism, what is it and what were the thoughts that characterized it?
Humanism was a cultural phenomenon inspired mainly by Francesco Petrarch (and Giovanni Boccaccio) in the last years of the 14th century and fully developed in the 1500s. The fundamental principle was the rediscovery of the Latin and Greek classics. The Humanists were in stark contrast to the Middle Ages, which they considered a dark age, and placed great value on man and his ability to live and act in his time by following the teaching and virtues of the ancients.
So what are the subjects that are generally referred to as humanities? Referring to the concept of humanism, humanistic subjects place enormous importance on man and study his condition and experiences related to his existence. Among the classic subjects that fall into this category the major ones are: literature, philosophy, history, religion, art history, visual arts, and the study of languages.
Humanism was important because it greatly changed the approach to these disciplines, trying to give a method for their study and development.
What subjects rely on the scientific method to experiment and theorize? Among the most important we recognize: mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy.
Why is general culture important?
General culture helps you experience our world better because it allows you to be in perfect touch with the reality around you.
On a daily basis you are faced with more or less important situations and events that affect your life and days, you automatically interpret these events and process them based on your knowledge.
Each person has their own knowledge so they react and act to life events based on it, culture is influenced by multiple factors, and the concepts possessed by one person are almost always different from someone else, even if they have had similar life experiences.
Improving your general culture allows you to have an overview of the world and makes you interpret it by taking into consideration all the factors that influence reality. It makes you a freer and more confident human being because by having your own cultural background you will be less susceptible to the opinions and ideas of others.
There is also an aspect given by the pleasure you get from learning something new, from keeping your brain trained by continually stimulating it with concepts and ideas that will go on to influence what you already know.
What are the best ways to improve your general knowledge?
The ways to improve your general culture are many and very different, and the great thing is that they are also often very engaging and fun.
Increasing your general culture is a lifelong process and even if you don't realize it happens all the time every time you read a book or the newspaper, when you watch a documentary or even an interesting movie, when you talk to your friends or visit a new city.
Every time you come in contact with a new piece of information or concept you increase your knowledge, and these are all notions that add to your cultural background and the arsenal of tools you have to deal with the world.
There are many ways to improve and increase it: reading books, watching documentaries, getting information through magazines and newspapers, traveling to learn about new countries and cultures, talking to interesting people, etc.
But we think one of the best ways is to do it while having fun and getting involved, so we have created general culture and subject-specific quizzes.
Our quizzes to improve your general knowledge and keep you entertained intelligently
With our quizzes you can test yourself and spend a few minutes of fun in a smart and constructive way.
Our general knowledge tests are a great way to test yourself in a fun way, trying to answer the questions allows you to test your level of knowledge and keep your mind trained.
Trying to answer the questions (especially the more difficult ones) is a little challenge that sets your brain in motion, makes you reason and recall the concepts you have learned throughout your life, reinforcing and supplementing them with new ideas and concepts.
Taking a moment of leisure is a great way to ease the stress of the days and gives you a few moments of levity by entertaining yourself and having fun with the small challenges represented by the questions.
The biggest benefit is that as you try to score as many points as possible with the quizzes, you improve your knowledge and learn new things, stimulate your brain and make possible connections with concepts you already know. These stimuli generate curiosity and eagerness to learn that will be very useful to you in everyday life.
How do the general knowledge quizzes work?
The way the tests work is as a multiple question and answer game, and you can take them wherever and whenever you want because they are always available online for free.
To better understand the structure of quiz games, here are a few frequently asked questions we get.
How, exactly, do the tests develop?
The operation is based on the classic model of quiz games organized in multiple questions and answers.
Thus, your task will be to try to answer general knowledge questions in the case of general culture quizzes, or on a specific topic in the case of tests on subjects such as geography, history, art, literature, and science.
You will be able to choose from multiple answers, and both at the end of each question and at the end of the quiz we will give you the results you got.
How many questions are there in the tests?
The number of questions you will have to answer in our quizzes varies, depending on the type of quiz and the subject matter. We usually try to put at least seven questions, but as you will see there are quizzes that have many more.
What kind of questions do you propose?
Again, it depends on the type of quiz. As you may have guessed, our quizzes are divided into general and thematic, and obviously the type of questions changes depending on the subject matter.
In general culture quizzes you will find generic questions on various topics, so you may find yourself answering geography questions as well as history questions, biology questions as well as art questions. To be able to score well you will need to have a good, not necessarily in-depth, knowledge of many subjects and topics.
In contrast, for thematic tests, questions will be more specific on particular topics such as geography, rivers, capitals, contemporary history, latin literature, astronomy, and you name it.
Are these difficult questions?
There are all kinds of questions, from the easiest to the most difficult. General culture is a very broad subject and it is difficult to cover it all with your knowledge, so that is precisely why you may be faced with questions that you are not sure what to answer.
So it depends from person to person, for some people some questions might seem very difficult that for others are child's play, it will be up to you to assess the difficulty and to think a little more about the questions that seem more complex to you.
How will I have to answer?
As mentioned, you will have to choose between two or more alternative answers, usually we put four, but depending on the type of question and topic they may vary. Once you have chosen the question that seems correct to you, all you have to do is select it and go on to find out whether you have answered it right or wrong.
How much time do I have to answer?
There is no time limit within which to answer, you can take as much time as you like, in fact we highly recommend it, especially for questions that you cannot answer instinctively. Often spending a few extra seconds on the question can cause you to refine a reasoning that leads you to answer more thoughtfully.
How will I know if the answer is right or wrong?
After you select the answer you want to choose, clicking continue will tell you whether the answer you just gave is right or wrong.
In case you have answered incorrectly, we will not tell you what the correct answer is, so if you want to retake the quiz to improve your score you will have to think even harder about how to answer.
Is there a summary of the results?
Yes, at the end of the quiz, when you have answered all the questions, we will show you a summary mirror of your results and tell you what your score was. As mentioned, we will not show you the correct answers; you will have to find out by taking the quiz again.
How many times can I take the Quiz?
You can take the quiz as many times as you want for an infinite number of times. If you want to improve your score and learn something new, taking the quiz again is the best way to improve both your score and personal knowledge.
Can I involve my friends?
Certainly, you can decide to share the quiz with your friends. This is a great way to make the game more fun and to share good times with people you love.
Art history quizzes that test your general knowledge about art eras
We have prepared a series of art history tests to test your knowledge in a fun way. How? By asking you questions about the various art periods and the artists, painters, works and paintings that characterized them.
For example, you'll find questions or quizzes on art history of the Renaissance, tests on Romanic art, questions on Greek or Roman art, and even quizzes on contemporary and modern art.
The questions we will ask cover many eras because human artistic expression is as long as the history of our species. In the tests you will find sometimes simple and sometimes difficult questions on the various artistic currents that are usually divided into:
- Ancient Art (e.g., Prehistoric, Greek, Roman)
- Medieval Art (e.g., Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance)
- Modern Art (e.g. Impressionism, Cubism, Futurism)
- Contemporary Art (e.g., Conceptual, Pop Art, Minimalism)
Let's review before we start with the art history tests:
Let's begin by defining the word in question: Art.
What is really meant? Let's start with the definition that the Courier's Dictionary.it
Activity of man based on the possession of a technique, on knowledge acquired both theoretically and through experience; in this sense, it also coincides with a craft that requires a specific skill
As we see this definition is very general and concerns art in the broadest sense which then can be declined in various areas, the one that interests us most in art history quizzes concernshuman artistic expression in the sense that we find explained on the Republica.it dictionary:
Creative activity directed at interpreting and representing, in various forms and by various means, the inner and outer world, suggesting sensations and feelings
Thereby the emotional and subjective sphere of both the maker of the work and the viewer of the work comes into play. Regarding this concept, there is a nice Man Ray quote:
My works are designed to entertain, bore, baffle, confuse and inspire reflection.
What are the artistic periods that art history quizzes are about?"
To define historical periods we start with the definition that Wikipedia gives of Art History:
Art history is the theory and history that studies the birth and progress of artistic expressions, through a philosophical and aesthetic methodological point of view as well as semiotic - cognitive and literary, with a focus on distinctive phenomena.
With regard to the birth of art, it is very difficult to draw a precise picture of it, however, we know that in the Paleolithic there were the first rock art forms: the famous graffiti depicting scenes of daily life of the moments of work or hunting.
More substantial are the artistic evidences of the earliest civilizations, especially of the Mediterranean, such as Greeks, Egyptians, Etruscans and Romans.
Then there are the artistic currents of the medieval period, often related to religious worship, such as Byzantine, Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance art.
The so-called modern period starts from the Baroque to movements such as Cubism, Futurism, and Dadaism.
Finally there is the era that we are still living in and that is contemporary art and we can trace movements such as: Conceptual Art, Pop Art, Minimalism, Arte Povera, etc.
How does the art history quiz work, frequently asked questions:
How does the test work?
The quizzes are structured with the classicquestion-and-multiple-answer pattern,we will ask you a general or themed question about an artistic current, a painting or an artist and you will have to choose which you think is the correct answer from 2 or 4 possible alternatives.
How many questions does each quiz have?"
Our tests have a varying and constantly updating number of questions. Typically there are at least 7 questions, but we continually try to increase the number of tests and questions to make them more and more engaging.
What period do the questions cover?
There are general quizzes on the whole history of art and themed questions in the specific quizzes on precise art movements. For example, in the general test you may find questions on prehistoric art and then suddenly switch to a question on conceptual art, whereas if I would take the quiz on Renaissance art all the questions will be about that specific age.
Are the questions difficult?
It depends a lot on your knowledge, there are questions that for someone will seem impossible but for someone''else much more knowledgeable on the subject they might seem like child's play. In general, we try to include questions of all levels of difficulty to make the game challenging.
How are the questions answered?
You will just have toselect the answer that seems most correct to you from among the various alternatives and go on to find out whether your choice is right or wrong.
How much time do I have to answer?
You can take as much time as you want because you have no time limit to choose your answer. Especially on the more difficult questions try to think hard about what to answer.
How do I know if I answered correctly?
After each question we will tell you if the answer is correct, but without giving you the solution in case you got it wrong. At the end of the quiz we will show you a summary with the results.
Can I retake the test to improve the result?
Yes, you can take the quiz as many times as you like to review the concepts better and achieve 100% right answers,
Here is a summary of how the quiz is conducted:
- You will have to answer 7 or more questions depending on the type of quiz
- There will be very varied questions: very difficult and easier
- You will have to evaluate the correct answer from 2/4 alternatives
- The right answer is only one
- At the end of the quiz you will be able to see the score you have achieved

Flag quizzes keep you entertained in a smart way!
The flag quizzes
are among the most fun geography tests, because they recall our remembrances as children
, when we enjoyed playing with the flags of the world, attracted by their colors and symbols.
As we grow up, knowledge of world flags becomes part of everyone's cultural baggage
, because the colors and symbols of flags carry very special meanings and stories.
This flags quiz will test your knowledge
of the flags of the world's continents, you will find tests on the flags of Europe, Asia, Africa, America, Oceania
, all of which are constantly being updated. The questions we will ask you will sometimes bevery difficult
because they will cover flags that are unfamiliar or very similar to others (African ones for example).
Surrounding the universe of flags is a microworld of flag enthusiasts
who take great pride in being able to recognize them all, even the strangest and most unfamiliar ones.
And are you part of these experts?
Do you think you can recognize even the most difficult flags? This quiz is just to test your general knowledge about flags in a way that isfun and clever
at the same time.
How do flag quizzes work?
The structure of the game
will be very familiar
to you, because it is the classic structure of the quizzes you see on television, with multiple questions and answers.
The number of questions on each test varies
depending on the type and, in general, it works like this: we show you a picture of a country-specific flag
and you will have to tell us which nation it belongs to.
The questions in some cases can be very difficult
because they might be about unfamiliar countries or similar flags to others.
After seeing the flag you will have to choose from alternative answers
, usually 4, where there will be in names of countries to associate with the given flag.
Try to think well about the answers especially for the pictures that pose the most difficulty for you. There is no time limit of time
within which to answer and so we advise you especially for the more difficult flags to take your time.
After you answer the question you can go on to the individual quiz result, where we will tell you if you answered correctly and then you can move on to the next question. At the end of the quiz we'll show you a summary of your results
where we'll show you the right and wrong answers, so you can memorize them and retake the quiz all over again so you can try to complete 100% correct answers.
To summarize, here is how quizzes are usually structured:
- Various questions where we will show you a picture of a flag
- A mix of difficult and simple questions to make the game engaging
- 4 or 2 answers to choose from.
- The right answer is only one.
- Summary of results at the end of the quiz
- Ability to retake the quiz until you complete 100%.
World Flags Quiz
In these quizzes you will find theflags of the world
, in random order scattered across all continents. You will go from answering questions about Africa, Europe, Asia, America and Oceania.
This can make the game a bit more complicated
because there is no common thread among the questions, but this variable is what makes the game more varied and the challenge more fun.
Europe flags quiz
European flags should be more familiar
to you, but we have tried to make the game more engaging by including flags of smaller, lesser-known countries as well. Be careful because just when you are overconfident you risk error, there are some flags that are similar to others that could mislead you.

Do you know the definition of geography?
Without dwelling much on overly complicated and long-winded definitions, we get a helping hand from the dictionary of the Corriere della Sera, which defines it as follows:
Science that studies the appearance of the Earth's surface and the physical, biological and human phenomena that occur there.
It may be useful to know the derivation of the name Geography, wiktionary helps us define the etymology:
from the Greek γεωγραφία ( composed of γῆ i.e. "land" and -γραϕία i.e. "description" ) and then from the Latin geographĭa
So we understand that geography is much more than just cartography, but describes all the phenomena that occur on earth, wikipedia is even more specific in telling us this:
Geography is much more than cartography, that is, the study of maps, or topography. Compared to them, in fact, geography adds the investigation of the dynamics and causes of the Earth's position in space, the phenomena occurring on it and its characteristics
And some of these phenomena are categorized by the Republic Dictionary:
- Astronomical Geography, a discipline that studies the Earth in the solar system
- Economic Geography, a discipline that studies the relationship that exists between economic phenomena and the environment in which they occur
- Physical Geography, a discipline that studies the appearance of the Earth's surface considered in relation to the physical phenomena that occur in the atmosphere, the hydrosphere and the lithosphere
- Linguistic Geography, geolinguistic
- Political Geography, a discipline that studies the distribution on the globe of political-territorial units
- Human Geography or anthropogenic, anthropogeography
As you see Geography encompasses a world in itself, in this regard there is a nice quote from John Dewey which reads:
The unity of all the sciences is found in geography. The significance of geography is that it presents the earth as the enduring seat of man's occupations
When we studied geography in addition to learning about boundaries, mountains, plains, rivers, lakes, etc. we have also learned how human settlements, cities, provinces, regions nations and continents are formed.
That is why our geography quizzes want to give you an overview of all branches of geography, so you will improve your general knowledge in a fun way by testing yourself.
Why is Geography so important?
The short answer to this simple question is that we think the study and knowledge of the subject of geography is useful for understanding the world around us.
Our land is a system in which all elements, including humans, relate to and influence each other.
We have learned since elementary school that geography studies the spatial aspect but also the human factor and how the latter intersects with the world around us. Knowing this system, while improving our general culture, helps us to live better on this planet.
Recalling notions learned as children, and perhaps forgotten, through quizzes, tests and fun games can help us refresh our memory and concepts that seemed long forgotten and at the same time really to spend a few minutes of entertainment and fun.
When was the last time you studied Geography?
Most likely, like most of us, your knowledge of geography comes from your elementary and middle school years.
Very often over the course of the years we completely forget the things we learned in school and what we are left with are the notions we learn from traveling, reading or watching news reports and documentaries.
There have been several studies done in the field of memory and on the difficulty we have in remembering concepts learned many years ago, our ability to remember is inversely proportional to the time elapsed.
If you are not fond of geography or travel it will be very difficult for you to answer the questions in our quizzes unless you have an iron memory and remember everything you learned in school.
Because geography studies go back so many years now it can be very useful, as well as fun, to try your hand at geography games that recall school memories.
Here are some frequently asked questions about Geography Quizzes
How do the quizzes work?
The tests are done completely online and are free. Our geography games have the classic quiz operation based on question and choice between multiple answers.
The game is very simple, all you have to do is try to answer the questions regarding physical and political geography that we present to you as we go along.
It is a classic test pattern, like what you may see in the famous TV quizzes, with the only difference being that you will now be the one who has to answer the questions.
How many questions are there in the tests?
The questions may vary from quiz to quiz, there is no fixed number of questions. The one on Italy's regional capitals, for example, has 20 questions, but there are some that have 7, others 10, and we are working on super quizzes with 100 questions.
Consider that we try to continually update our games and often extend the number of questions in the quizzes that are having the most success.
What kind of questions are you proposing?
The questions are about specific geography concepts on the topic of the quiz in question, obviously the questions between the flag quizzes and the capitals quizzes will be very different from each other.
Generally they will be questions regarding the physical and political geography of countries or continents, such as questions about rivers on lakes, mountains, borders, cities, capitals, regions, boundaries, you name it.
Are they difficult questions?
The questions are of different difficulty, sometimes they are very simple sometimes they are very complex. There are very trivial questions such as, "What is the capital of Italy?" and very complex questions such as, "With whom does Uzbekistan border?"
Obviouslythe level of difficulty is relative and depends on your background in geography, but we have tried to vary the type and difficulty of the questions to make the game fun for everyone.
How will I have to answer it?
The way it works is as a multiple-choice quiz, so you will have to choose from a number of plausible answers the one that seems most correct to you.
For example, we might ask you "What is the longest river in Europe" and give you 4 possible alternatives to choose from.
We ask you to reason about each of the questions without asking Google for help, even for the more complex questions it's good to do it yourself and test yourself, also because this way the concepts will stay better in your mind
How much time do I have to answer?
There is no time limit, you will have as much time as you want to think about the questions and their answers, so take your time and try to answer as best you can.
How will I know if the answer is right or wrong?

It depends on how well you did on the school benches.
Depends on how much you love history and its facets.
Depends on how much you have read throughout your life.
Depends on how many documentaries of Piero Angela you've watched :)

Before we find out about the history tests, let's do a general culture review: what is "History"?
The dictionary of Corriere della Sera defines it simply as follows:
The human affairs over time.
And it comes from the Greek word ἱστορία, the etymology explains it wikitionary:
...from Latin historia derived from Greek ἱστορία, meaning "investigation, research."
If we want to get into specifics we ask for help from Treccani which delves into and explains the difference between chronicle and history:
Orderly exposition of past human facts and events as they result from a critical inquiry aimed at ascertaining both the truth of them, and the connections mutual connections whereby it is permissible to recognize in them a unity of development (so defined, history is contrasted with chronicle, which is instead exposition, mostly non-critical, of facts in their simple chronological succession)
After reviewing the definition of history it may be interesting to do a few more little review.
Modern History, Ancient History, Contemporary History, etc. How are the Historical periods divided?
Usually the study of history focuses on precise periods to which definitions are given in order to better understand what we are talking about. The names given to the various eras can vary according to geographical locations, as can the dates of their beginning and end.
In any case wikipedia, tells us which is the periodization most commonly used:
The best-known periodization, which refers mainly to the history of Europe divides history into five periods: Prehistory, Ancient History, Medieval History, Modern History, and Contemporary History.
And that is the one we refer to in our history quizzes.
Here are the frequently asked questions we are asked on history quizzes
What is the test conduct?

Before playing with literature quizzes let's talk about the concept of "Literature"
What do we mean when we talk about literature? What is its definition? To answer this question we get help from the dictionary of the Treccani that tells us:
Nowadays literature is commonly understood to mean the totality of works entrusted to writing, which proposeaesthetic ends, or, while not proposing them, nevertheless achieve them; and with a more abstract meaning, the intellectual activity aimed at the study or analysis of such works
Literature represents the history of man and define the characteristics of the peoples of different countries in a given historical period, in this we take an integration of the concept from Wikipedia which quotes a phrase from Francesco De Sanctis:
It is nevertheless true that the literature of a nation constitutes an "organic synthesis of the soul and thought of a people," that is, a mirror of the respective society at a defined time and which varies from work to work.
As Wikitionary teaches us, The Latin term Literature (from "Littera": Letter) denoted the very act of writing, but later in time it took the meaning of teaching language (Grammar from the Greek word "Gramma").
After doing asmall review on the definition of literature we can get a little more into the substance of the quizzes
How do literature quizzes work?
The structure is the same as the classic multiple-choice quizzes.We will ask you a series of questions about literature that you must answer by choosing from a range of plausible answers.
Each quiz consists of a series of questions ofvarying numbers that are updated continuously. The questions may be about literature in general or be very specific about dates, works, authors, and movements of a particular country.
You may find questions of varying difficulty, there will be questions that may seem very simple to you (but be careful the answers can be misleading) and others that will seem difficult. In any case take as long as you want to answer,there is no limit and you can reason as much as you want about all the possible answers.
When you have chosen the answer that seems correct all you have to do is select it and continue to the next page where we will tell you whether you have answered correctly (but without giving you any indication as to which answer is correct).

Before taking the science test, let's do a little review, what is natural science?
Now we'll get some help from the Treccani to understand what is really meant by Science and what is its definition:
A set of disciplines founded essentially on observation, experience, computation, or having nature and living things as their subject matter, and making use of formalized languages.
In these quizzes we will deal with the natural sciences, which are defined by Wikipedia as:
The natural sciences are one of the two branches of science(the other being the social sciences), which include the study of the physical, chemical and biological aspects of the Earth, the Universe and the various forms of life, including humans. Earth sciences and life sciences are counted among the natural sciences.
