When it comes to the world at large, there are so many things to know, no one can possibly know it all. Despite that, there are still some people who go around thinking that they're actual know-it-alls - that they've seen everything the world has to offer under the sun, and committed it all to memory.

Again, knowing everything in the world is impossible, but still - there's a ton of room within the human crane for new knowledge, and some people know plenty more than others. However, that doesn't stop people from considering themselves know-it-alls without having proven how much they really know.

Thankfully, this quiz presents the opportunity to do just that. There's a care package of trivia questions below, and combined, they cover several walks of life. Anyone who's able to answer them all correctly can emerge from this quiz with a veritable - albeit virtual - certification of being an actual know-it-all. The only catch is that it will be hard to find a chess player out there brave enough to enter a game with them.

Speaking of bravery, it takes a good amount of that to even attempt this quiz. Those brave enough to enter this in the first place are ready to answer the following 50 questions.

advertising

Question 1

True or false: piranhas are reptiles

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (2)

Must all animals that dwell in the ocean necessarily be labeled as fish? Or is there some room for the reptile class in their categorization? Trivia buffs might think that this first question is an easy starter - a present of sorts that might contribute to a perfect score - but perhaps the obvious answer here isn't the right one. Or, maybe we're being tricky and misleading by saying that. There's only one way to find out, and it's by clicking a button.

Question 2

Name the currency used in Japan

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (3)

Pictured here is the minimalist rising sun that hovers in the center of Japan's flag. But for now, the beautiful content inherent in Japan's national symbol isn't our concern - instead, we'd like to know exactly what sort of currency is used in the country. This one is a given for those who have spent some time in Japan, but anyone who hasn't might have to strain their trivial minds to get it right. What sort of money do they use there?

Question 3

Which colors must be mixed together to make green?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (4)

Of course, these days, people have too much on their plates to spend time mixing primary colors together in order to get green. Instead, we tend to prefer chasing the green in a very different way entirely. Still, this is a basic question that even children should know the answer to, despite how little time they spend actually applying the knowledge. Green doesn't simply fall down from trees - it must be formed by mixing two colors together. Which ones?

Question 4

In which country is the Leaning Tower of Pisa located?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (5)

Timber! That tower's going to take a tumble any second now, we just know it. Really, who would build such a slanted, tall and heavy thing right next to such a comparatively sturdy, well-built structure? As fun as it might be to take a goofy picture next to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, tourists must do so at their own risk, since the tower's days of standing are numbered. Those who take such pictures will invariably be doing so in a certain country - name it.

Question 5

Which animal is the tallest in the world?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (6)

Animals come in all shapes and sizes, and right now we're more concerned with the size of a particular animal. This species is the tallest that walks our green earth, and that's a title no one can strip away from it. Depending on who's being asked, this animal doesn't have many merits aside from its great height - the only other thing we know about it is that it likes to shriek wildly from time to time, whatever that's worth.

Question 6

What's a xylophone?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (7)

We just asked this scientist what a xylophone is, and the best answer he has for us was an enthusiastic shrug and a confused expression. Really, who gave this man his degree?! We'll be having a stern chat with him after this - at the very least, all scientists should have a basic understanding of what a xylophone is, even if they never plan to go near one. We'd even say that it doesn't take a scientist to get this one right.

Question 7

How many dots are on one six-sided die?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (8)

Some people play dice so often, they're acutely familiar with the number of dots on these cubes. For anyone else, though, getting this one right might demand a bit of basic mental arithmetic. Pictured here are a few of these cubes minus the dots - because we're not here to hold anyone's hand, and showing the dots on the objects would be us lending too much help. Dust off that mathematical mind for a second and try figuring this one out.

Question 8

What is the day after Christmas commonly known as?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (9)

As joyous a time as Christmas is to many people, many others bite their nails during the festivities, waiting for the day after Christmas to come so that they can go absolutely wild. Although the day that follows Christmas isn't nearly as traditional as Christmas itself, one might argue that its concept speaks more to the zeitgeist of the current world. Either way, this iconic day is sure to put on a show, definitely for those participating but also for those who watch videos about it on YouTube.

Question 9

Name the fictional city Batman calls home

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (10)

As much as Batman would like to stand at the top of Kami's tower, presiding over the world as a whole, he's not quite at that god level, and must instead restrict his area of surveillance to one fictional city in particular. Of course, he tends to get more than enough action here, since the place is absolutely riddled with crime. We don't even want to imagine what it would look like without Batsy's influence. What's this town called, anyway?

Question 10

Can octopuses change their color?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (11)
(Video) 50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Sharp Brain Can Answer | Daily Trivia Quiz Round 31

Octopuses are definitely one of the most fascinating creatures on the planet, for more reasons than one. They're said to possess a level and style of intelligence that we can scarcely wrap our minds around - in fact, their brains are located throughout their bodies rather than in one place like ours. Aside from that, what we really want to know here is whether an octopus has the highly coveted ability of camouflage. Can these monsters change their color at will?

Question 11

Who wrote Hamlet?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (12)

"To be or not to be? That is the question." At least, that's the question that a certain famous writer wrote a long ways back, but it's not the question that we're thinking about right now. Instead, we're wondering if anyone can guess who wrote that iconic line, and the play that surrounds it. Here is a stormtrooper, pondering the answer to this question and to the question of life itself while staring at the head of another stormtrooper. It's super unsettling, and quite deep.

Question 12

In what year did World War II end?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (13)

While the planes of World War II flew overhead during the years of its duration, it must have been easy for the world to think that the warring aircraft would continue to block out the sun day in and day out until all hope for world peace would come to a grisly end. Thankfully for everyone involved, World War II did end up having an expiry date. To get this question right, all we need to know is the year it ended.

Question 13

What do paleontologists study?

This guy certainly has no idea what paleontologists study, and if he can't even figure it out, who in the world possibly can? This is the guy who waltzed into this knowledge quiz thinking he's some kind of genius or something, but if he doesn't even have a clue as to what a paleontologist is and what he or she does, how will he possibly stand a chance against the super hard questions at the end of this quiz? Poor guy.

Question 14

Ottawa is the capital of which country?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (15)

Some say Ottawa is a glorious city, but only a select population of the world has access to it relatively easily. If someone was standing at the peak of that clock tower, balancing themselves on its pointy top, what country would they be standing in? Ottawa isn't the most popular city in the world, granted, but it is the capital of a certain, relatively prominent country. Let's see who can choose that country from the options below - in one try.

Question 15

Which chess piece can't move in a straight line?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (16)

The brave white pawn faces down the black army by itself - a true picture of courage if ever we've seen one. Of course, the impact of this story is lessened somewhat when we consider that the pawn is an inanimate object. Even if it did have the capacity to feel fear, its burden would be lessened by the knowledge that its own army faction stands behind it, ready to back it up. Out of the pieces on this board, which can not move in a straight line?

Question 16

What's a supernova?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (17)

Again, we've run into a scientist here who can't seem to answer this next basic question. Granted, it's not the most basic thing we ask in this quiz - after all, some might say that supernovas are an abstract concept - but come on! Do they have PhDs on special at the supermarket these days? Or are these all just regular people wearing lab coats, and not real scientists? Either way, let's see who can figure out what a supernova is.

Question 17

How are bats able to fly in the dark?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (18)

Here's a bat flying in plain daylight - an easy enough feat to accomplish given the fact that it has wings and all. However, what's much more impressive about bats is that they can glide through the air in total darkness without losing much - if any - of their mobility. Just how are bats able to do such a thing? Do they have decalcified third eyes that allow them to see into the astral plain? Or is the explanation something else?

Question 18

Which car company makes the Corolla?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (19)

Pictured here is the Corolla, and just look at that - neither the front nor the back of the car can be seen from this angle, so the logo is remarkably absent. That's unfortunate for anyone looking for a free ride through this quiz - perhaps in this brand new car - but it presents a welcome challenge for those seeking to have their neurons stretched here. Either way, the Corolla is a pretty well known car, as is the company that makes it.

Question 19

Name this animal

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (20)

Whoa! Just what on earth are we looking at here? Part of it suggests that this might be a unicorn - we're looking at that super obvious horn on its head, namely - but that can't be right. For one, this animal is thick as Hades, and it also seems to be pretty comfortable in the ocean. Although it seems like it's straight out of a fairy tale, this animal actually exists in the world, and it has a name.

Question 20

What's the technical term for a lie detector?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (21)

(Video) How Smart Are You? Can You Answer 50 General knowledge Questions? - Quiz Game

We feel sorry for the poor sap who's been made to take this lie detector test. That can't be a stress free process to go through, to say the very least. We're not sure what he did to deserve this, and we won't waste any time venturing a guess here. Instead, let's get a little scientific - what's the proper name for a lie detector test? If the answer is unclear, it might be worth taking a wild guess - just don't lie about it.

Question 21

Which of these is NOT the name of a Michael Jackson song?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (22)

Before leaving to the next plain, Michael Jackson left us with a great many classic tracks to remember his legacy by. Without these songs, the dance floor wouldn't have been quite as lit up as it has for the past few decades. Aside from the gifts of his own music, Michael Jackson inspired a legion of pop artists who came after him, but let's leave them aside for now. Who knows which of these tracks is not by Mr. Jackson?

Question 22

"In the beginning" are the first three words of which famous book?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (23)

There's a certain, super famous, mega divisive book we're thinking about, and it started with three simple words: "In the beginning". After that point in the book, things took a series of wild turns, and for better or worse these developments proved super influential. But let's not touch that topic with a twenty foot pole for now - instead, let's keep things simple, and see which trivia buff out there can figure out the book these opening words belong to.

Question 23

True or false: diamond is harder than granite

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (24)

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, and everyone knows it. Unfortunately though, the relationship between girls and diamonds doesn't point us toward the ranking of this natural material in hardness relative to other stones. Is diamond the hardest rock in the world, or does that title go to another material? It doesn't take a geologist to figure this one out, but being one would certainly make the question a total breeze. Activate that inner geologist, and try guessing the right answer.

Question 24

Which country is Amsterdam located in?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (25)

Pictured here is beautiful Amsterdam - definitely a place worth visiting for those interested in all the wonderful experiences the city has to offer. There's a lot to do in Amsterdam - a staggering amount of things, actually, and way too many to name here. What we do have room to focus on, however, is which country this iconic city is located in. This is a bit of geography related trivia, and that might spell doom for supposed buffs who are unprepared.

Question 25

What's an echidna?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (26)

This quiz has been pretty easy so far, hasn't it? We hope it has, because now that we're at the halfway point, we're about to raise the heat a significant amount. No more freebies - this is where the true challenges begin. To start, let's see if there's a smarty pants out there who can figure out what an echidna is. A clue might be useful here, but since we're not fooling around anymore, we won't be giving one out.

Question 26

Babe Ruth is a legend of which sport?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (27)

Even for those who aren't much into sports, the name Babe Ruth is famous enough that pretty much everyone should know the answer to this question, especially all self-proclaimed trivia buffs out there. Babe could have been the hero of any number of the sports pictured here, though of course, his level of mastery can only be achieved by placing all his focus into one particular endeavor. Let's see who can figure out which sport Babe Ruth is legend in.

Question 27

Who's the Fresh Prince of Bel Air?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (28)

Just who is this snazzy man doing his little dance in his purple world over here? Are we looking at the legendary Fresh Prince of Bel Air, or is he just serving as a decoy, try to prevent us from getting the right answer? We can't really say, or to be more accurate, we won't say - after all, this is the latter half of the quiz, and things won't be so easy anymore. Unless of course we're talking to a Fresh Prince fan.

Question 28

What's the smallest country in the world?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (29)

Some say that the world we live in is small, and we can't really get behind their reasoning for that. Any span of matter that takes so long to walk across can't really be considered small, come on now. However, when people call a certain country in the world tiny, and they're referring to the one we're thinking about, we can't help but agree. After all, this particular country can be trekked over in no time at all. Which is it?

Question 29

Complete this proverb: "All roads lead to _______."

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (30)

Just where do all roads lead to? This is a tricky riddle, or at least it would be if it didn't happen to be a classic proverb often used in casual conversation. Despite that, it's not really the most used saying in the world, especially not these days, so this question is likely to present quite a challenge. While we sit back and enjoy this bowl of spaghetti, let's see if there's anyone out there who can complete the proverb.

Question 30

Where is Mount Everest located?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (31)

Mount Everest represents a pinnacle of achievement for those who have scaled it, and a symbol of achievement to come for those who plan to do. Thankfully, there's no need to go anywhere near this huge rocky mass in order to get the question right, but what we do require is a bit of geographical knowledge. The answer to this one might not be as obvious as it seems, so trivia buffs are advised to consider their options quite carefully.

Question 31

Who is officially credited with the invention of the light bulb?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (32)
(Video) General Knowledge Quiz for Smart People - 50 Mixed Trivia Questions That Will Test Your Brain Power

The light bulb is a great invention, there's no doubt about that, and we won't say more of the matter. Despite the immeasurable innovation it presented, the story of the invention of the light bulb is fraught with mystery, conspiracy, and possibly even deception. Despite all of that, one person in particular emerged as the historical inventor who officially gave birth to this great gadget. Let's see who can name the person officially credited with the invention of the light bulb.

Question 32

Who is Kylie Minogue?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (33)

Some people live and breath for Kylie Minogue and her work, while billions of others scarcely know who this woman is. Despite that, she's an objective legend, and we won't hear a word to the contrary. She might not be as engrossed in the lime light these days as she once was, but her legacy can never be under valued. Those looking to pay tribute to this lesson can do so now by getting this question right, let's see who can do it.

Question 33

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is named...

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (34)

Everyone knows this classic cartoon character as the Hunchback of Notre Dame, which is fair enough since those are the words printed over the cover of his movie. However, unless we're talking to a devoted Disney fan, guessing this character's birth name might not be such an easy thing to do. He's a heck of a dude, to say the very least, and he was gifted with a heck of a name at birth. Who out there can figure out what that name is?

Question 34

What's the capital of Kenya?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (35)

There's a lot of good to be said about Kenya, perhaps particularly regarding its capital. Anyone who has visited the country will likely have no problem getting this one right, though it'll take an intermediate level geography pro to best the question if they haven't been there in person. If there's some initial trouble here, remember that process of elimination is a great ally in quizzes like these. Let's see if there's a real trivia buff who can name the Kenyan capital.

Question 35

Who painted this?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (36)

This picture, right here, is of one of the greatest paintings in the world, and that's an objective opinion for anyone looking for one. Our worldly, undeniable artistic tastes aside, let's see who can get this mid level, intermediate trivia question right. After all, the person who painted it is perhaps just as well known for the craziness in his personal life as he is for the craziness in his art - at least we'd think so if his art wasn't so impossibly nutty.

Question 36

Which of the following countries is closest to the South Pole?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (37)

Look at that - it's the actual South Pole! How can such a legendary pole be trapped within the confines of this quiz in internet land? As we attempt to bring this object back to Antarctica where it belongs, let's see if there's a savvy quiz taker out there who knows enough about geography to get this question right. As much as all the countries in the world want to be close to the South Pole, some countries are invariably closer than others.

Question 37

Name this bug

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (38)

Yeek! That thing is insane, and judging from how large it scales compared to that person's finger tips, it looks huge! We really don't want to be lingering around this entry any longer than we need to, so let's try and make quick work of this question. This is the big that unleashes its super high pitched mating call in the summertime - people usually hear these things rather than see them, which we respect them for. What's this one called?

Question 38

What's the correct term for a baby cod?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (39)

Here is a cod in its full glory, swimming around in the ocean like it owns the place. Of course, it certainly does not - in the underwater food chain, codfish lie somewhere at the lower half of the middle segment, though they sometimes try to convince themselves otherwise. If it helps its pride, this cod can at least relish in the fact that it's bigger and stronger than a baby version of itself, though that shouldn't provide much comfort. What's the baby version called?

Question 39

In Greek mythology, who is the Goddess of Agriculture?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (40)

Let's dial the hands of time back several years, when legends of the gods of Greek mythology were culturally prominent. People back in Ancient Greece thought about these deities much more often than we do today, though it does speak to the staying power of the gods that we're even talking about them right now. In particular, we're thinking of the Goddess of Agriculture - specifically, we're looking to see if any trivia buffs out there can figure out her name.

Question 40

What's Xylography?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (41)

Xylography is definitely not the type of term that's used every day, unless a person happens to inhabit a certain niche in life, though we won't say more about that. Either way, hopefully there isn't a quiz taker out there who thought that these bottom entries would be anywhere near as easy as the first. Nope - this is where the objective challenges start, and xylography is the first of the bunch. Who can say what this term refers to?

Question 41

When is International Women's Day?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (42)
(Video) Can You Answer 50 General knowledge Questions? - Quiz Game

Women all over the world get their day, and it lands at a very specific spot on the calendar every year. We won't go into the details revolving around women's day, since we're only a cluster of nano neurons that live on the internet and know next to nothing of the outside world, but that's where the quiz takers come in. If there's a real smarty pants out there, they'll be able to pick out which day is Women's Day.

Question 42

Which country is Dubrovnik located in?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (43)

Dubrovnik is a truly beautiful place. Set along the Dalmatian Coast, savvy travelers have been flocking to this town as their secret hideout for centuries. As it turns out, this is the place where much of the Game of Thrones series is filmed, for whatever that's worth. Though we won't speak of such games any longer - instead, let's focus on Dubrovnik geographically, and try guessing which country it's located in. The Dalmatian Coast is one heck of a hint.

Question 43

What was the official name of Thailand before 1939?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (44)

There are infinite wonders to uncover in Thailand, and that might be more true today than it's ever been despite the country's long history. Speaking of history, some geniuses out there might note that this beautiful place wasn't always called Thailand - in fact, its name was changed relatively recently, back in 1939. It was known under a very different name before then, and anyone who prides themselves on their history knowledge should definitely know what we're talking about here.

Question 44

True or false - on Venus, the Sun rises in the west and sets in the east

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (45)

Here is Venus - a desolate wasteland as far as we know, but we don't know very much in the universal sense. We're not there, after all - it's possible that, as soon as our telescopes point away from the planet, its secret citizens lift themselves up from under their rocks and party from sunrise till sunset. Speaking of the sun, which way does it rise and set in Venus? Does it operate under the same laws as it does on Earth?

Question 45

How many bones are there in an elephant's trunk?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (46)

An elephant's truck is a fascinating appendage, and we wouldn't mind having one stuck to our face for a day or two. Maybe not two days, actually, since that thing is probably super heavy. It's possible that a lot of its weight comes from the sheer amount of bones found within it, or maybe all that mass is coming from other bodily material. Who's to say - we aren't biologists, after all. Maybe there's a biologist out there who's taking this quiz.

Question 46

What's the longest river in the world?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (47)

As much as all rivers want to be considered the longest, that title can only go to one, truly massive body of water. Those who live anywhere near this river will likely have heard many tales of its legend, but for everyone else, this might be a question that demands a prayer to the gods of trivia. Either way, the answer lies hidden amid the options below - choose it correctly, and we'll move on to the next set of questions.

Question 47

Which philosopher said, "I think, therefore I am"?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (48)

Just reading that sentence alone is enough to blow the mind. What it even means, we won't even be touching with a ten foot digital pole today - even if we had the time, we'd probably never be able to get to the bottom of its depth. It's a statement that brings about an infinite series of question, each with no real answer. Thankfully, we don't need to dive into any of that abstraction for now - just name the philosopher who said it.

Question 48

Choose the chemical symbol for potassium

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (49)

Even if the person taking this quiz was Bill Nye, he still might have trouble with this question if he didn't brush up on his chemistry. We've all learned the horror and splendor that is the periodic table back in high school chem class, but how much of that information was actually retained tends to vary on the student in question. Anyone who paid attention to the chart when they were learning it should definitely know the symbol for potassium.

Question 49

What's the Spanish word for fox?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (50)

The fox stares down its prey - probably a rabbit or bird - and waits for it to make a move. Since these beasts are related to wolves, their hunting instincts are super sharp. Too bad they're not quite as big as their furry, fanged cousins, otherwise they'd be able to take on some serious game. At any rate, back to the trivia - people out there might think they know a lot about foxes, but do they know the Spanish word for one?

Question 50

Which of these things do mycologists study?

50 General Knowledge Questions Only A Know-It-All Can Answer (51)

Mycologists aren't the most famous of the 'ologists' by any stretch, but the good work they're doing these days can not be undervalued. After all, some of these hard working scientists are chipping away at the building blocks of life itself, though whether they'll ever pull out a definite treasure from the endeavor is a question only time will answer. Meanwhile, we can take our time and answer this one. What, in this great blue world, does a mycologist study?
