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

1. A court-appointed psychologist described conservative commentator and author Dinesh D’Souza, who served eight months in a halfway house for breaking campaign-finance laws, as “arrogant and intolerant of others’ feelings.”

2. India banned more than 850 adult websites, but then revoked its ban following a social media uproar.

3. An Indian lawyer who lobbied for the ban described pornography as “worse than Hitler, worse than AIDS, cancer, or any other epidemic.”

4. The Singapore-based couple that created the Rotimatic, an automatic roti machine, received $11.5 million in investments, allowing them to expand to international markets.

5. The couple also announced plans to produce the Dosamatic and Purimatic.



(1, 2, 3, and 4 really happened.)
