DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. A Wall Street Journal survey revealed that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was paid $84.3 million last year, almost four times what Indra Nooyi earned at PepsiCo.

2. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s presidential campaign released a limited edition T-shirt with the slogan “Tanned. Rested. Ready.”

3. The municipal corporation of Ahmedabad announced a scheme to pay one rupee every time a resident uses a public toilet.

4. The Ahmedabad scheme will pay residents two rupees if they remember to wash their hands.

5. Tennis legend Steffi Graf was appointed the Ayurveda brand ambassador of Kerala.

 

 

(1, 2, 3, and 5 really happened.)
