DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. Microsoft shareholders approved an $84 million pay package for new CEO Satya Nadella.

2. Hundreds of people tried to enter a hospital in Baruipur, India, to catch a glimpse of a baby boy born with two extra arms and two extra legs, believing him to be a reincarnation of a Hindu deity.

3. After the US government appointed Richard Rahul Verma, an Indian-American, as ambassador to India, the Indian government appointed James Joseph, an American-Indian, as ambassador to America.

4. The Indian government created a website where tourists from the US and 42 other countries can apply for visas and receive authorization by email.

5. The Indian government signed a contract with Indian Maharaja Tours to sell email addresses of tourists to the company.

 

 

(1, 2, and 4 really happened.)
