I tried to put a variety of questions on the test, and I am pretty sure that everything is correct. Let me know what you think of the test and if you think something might be wrong!

I hope you enjoy the test!
I had only one complaint. You sited Hurricane Wilma as the lowest pressure ever recorded in a hurricane, at 882 milibars, but supertypoon tip reached 870 milibars. Was the intention that this was a trick question in that Tip is not a "hurricane" but a typhoon?

Kinda. I did it back in 6th grade, but only as JV. Though I have studied it extensively elsewhere.

Too bad I'm in ninth grade next year. :cry:
