DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

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

1. A family in Sitarganj, Uttarakhand, found a five-foot crocodile in their bathroom.

2. Instead of wearing an inexpensive mask during the coronavirus pandemic, a Pune businessman had a $4,000 gold mask made for himself.

3. Following a request from interfaith leaders, the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas agreed to remove the Jain statue of Lord Mahavir from its Foundation Room nightclub.

4. If he’s elected president, presumptive Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden pledged to expand the H-1B program and eliminate the green card backlog.

5. If he’s re-elected president, Donald Trump pledged to eliminate the H-1B program and expand the green card backlog.

(1, 2 and 3 really happened.)
