DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

How much do you know about current events in India and the U.S.? Try this short quiz!

1. Delhi was ranked 111th out of 140 world cities in a global liveability study.

2. A Japanese company has opened a toilet factory in Gujarat, planning to market toilets to middle-class Indians.

3. Sim Bhullar, the seven-foot-five center for the Sacramento Kings, lost two teeth in an exhibition game when he jumped too high and hit a basketball rim.

4. Lush Cosmetics named its new mustache wax “Veerappan,” after the notorious Tamil sandalwood smuggler.

5. A Google executive predicted that there will be more Indians on the Internet than Americans by the end of the year.

 

 

(1, 2, 4, and 5 really happened.)
