Fact Question 1

1. In all low-income countries across the world today, how many girls finish primary school?

A: 20 percent B: 40 percent C: 60 percent


Correct answer is C. Sixty percent of the girls in low-income countries finish primary school. According to World Bank[3], the number is 63.2 percent, but we rounded it to 60 percent to avoid overstating progress.

The question comes from Gapminder Test 2017, that 12 000 people in 14 countries took. Read more about the test here. See the results from audiences at our lectures here. Take the test – available in several languages – here.
