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

1. An Indian-American art teacher at a Dallas high school was suspended for using a squirt gun to shoot an image of Donald Trump projected on a whiteboard during his inauguration.

2. Actor Kal Penn helped raise more than $850,000 for Syrian refugees in the name of a social media troll who told Penn that he didn’t belong in America.

3. A leaked draft of an executive order revealed that President Trump plans to convert the H-1B visa program to H-1A, which will stand for “Hire 1 American.”

4. Pakistan officially ended its ban on importing Indian movies.

5. An anonymous source told Times of India that Pakistan lifted its ban because Prime Minister Sharif’s daughter Asma was dying to see Kaabil on a big screen.



(1, 2, and 4 really happened.)
