Basques or Catalonia? I'm not sure. The year matches Catalonia but the geography matches Basques.

Much thanks for posting the answers.

Turned out I did much, much better than I thought. If 35 is the cut line I'm right on it, but regardless, definitely not pleased hahah. A lot of things I apparently need to review. :D

Thank you for the video and the answer set. No matter the test I enjoy taking all of them.

43/50 for me with three of my misses being right answers a question too late:
SpoilerShow
Pandora for Spotify
Blank during time for The Fault in Our Stars then getting it during the next Q.
daisy for orchid and realized my error soon after
not a clue on TOMS shoes
way off with bivalve for amphibians
wrote Boyhood and realized it was La La Land, I mean Moonlight during the next question.
Brazil for Venezuela so not my day for world leaders

43/50 for me. As usual, recent pop culture was one of the sources of my struggles.
SpoilerShow
No idea on The Fault in Our Stars. I've heard of it, but never read the book or seen the movie (and how odd that this test had separate categories for "Novels," "British Novels," and "Bestsellers")

No idea on orchid.

NHO "dab" as a dance move.

No idea on Moonlight, which I haven't seen.

Femur for fibula.

Vietnam for Thailand.

Divergent for Ready Player One.

I missed Pandora for Spotify in #8
Blanked on amphibians in #28
NHO of dab for #29
No guess for Moonlight on #32

I was pleased to get The Fault in Our Stars, Beyonce and Ready Player One and get the 50/50/90 for Austen and Wharton

I missed 23, 26, and 49.

Though I'm not sure I would have gotten 8, 28, & 32 in time.

23 was sorta pavlov so that's something I've jotted down as need-to-know from now on.
