Yep, your turn! (Sorry, I meant its historical significance... his historial significance is a little outside the scope of the rules)

Sorry to interject, but do you guys think that real tests will be as trivia/fact based as this QM seems to be going in the trend of?
I would have thought it would be much more calculation based.

So far, this has just been going over concepts. I'd expect lots of basic calculations in the beginning of actual tests (mostly because making up numbers is effort).

Well i mean, its always good to know those random facts because they might appear on a test. and sometimes you rlly cant study for these random facts.

They're not really random so far though

Not only is it effort, but you've also gotta run 'em yourself; both for the answer, and to make sure they're realistic enough for to be mathematically plausible.
