DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. Hairdressers in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa announced a ban on “fashionable” beards, saying it violates Islamic law.

2. Archie Comics and Graphic India announced plans to create a Bollywood-style film that portrays Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica as Indian characters.

3. Netflix announced that it will carry more Indian content this fall, but only if subscribers pledge to stop sharing their Netflix accounts with friends and relatives.

4. During a visit to India, Donald Trump Jr. said he was impressed that even the “poorest of the poor” have smiles on their faces.

5. Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan spoke to members of the Philadelphia 76ers about the impact of their emotions on the basketball court.

 

 

(1, 2, 4, and 5 really happened.)
