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

1. A 43-year-old woman in Andhra Pradesh watched the movie Baahubali 2: The Conclusion while doctors performed brain surgery on her.

2. By the time the doctors had completed the brain surgery, only half the movie was over.

3. A Sri Lankan man was caught at Vizag Airport, Andhra Pradesh, with 14 gold biscuits in his stomach.

4. Actor Mukesh Rishi, playing the role of Ravana in Delhi’s Ramlila celebration, was ticketed by Delhi police for wearing a crown instead of a helmet while riding a motorcycle.

5. Delhi Traffic Police and Gurugram Police argued over Twitter on who had jurisdiction to alleviate a traffic jam on National Highway 48.



(All 5 really happened.)
