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

1. President Trump, speaking on Kashmir at a press conference, said he told the leaders of India and Pakistan, “Fellas, work it out. Just work it out.”

2. Prime Minister Modi responded to Trump by tweeting, “We will, big fella. We will.”

3. Actress Mindy Kaling selected tennis legend John McEnroe to narrate her Netflix series about the complicated life of a first-generation Indian-American teenage girl.

4. A group of Indian-Americans gathered outside Congressman Ro Khanna’s recent town hall meeting in Cupertino, California, to protest his membership in the Pakistani American Congressional Caucus.

5. Comedian Hasan Minhaj said he was denied entry to the “Howdy Modi” event in Houston because of comments he had made on his Netflix show.



(1, 3, 4, and 5 really happened.)
