NYC Bus Quizzes

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I've made some quizzes (just for fun) to test one's knowledge of the bus system. I have made two bus route/route history quizzes for Brooklyn and Staten Island. Each of the quizzes has additional instructions. They're not so easy, just a heads up (unless you know where to look). I plan on making more for each of the other boroughs (and maybe some others in the future), but I would like to hear some feedback.

Here are the link to the quizzes:

Brooklyn

Staten Island

Nice quizzes, Just a few edits to your quiz on SI routes:

 

If there's issues with the questions, you should probably PM me instead of posting it here, so that way, people don't already know what the answer is and then take it when I correct it.

The quiz results will be adjusted automatically after fixing the answer.

I appreciate the feedback I've received, and I've fixed a few things on the previous quizzes. With that said, here's the results so far from the quizzes above:

Brooklyn: 

Out of 20 respondents, the average is 21/100. The highest score is a 54. The hardest question is Q7, with 0% right, and the easiest question is Q9, with 40% right.

Staten Island:

Out of 13 respondents, the average is a 40/100. The highest score is a 78. The hardest question is Q1 and Q9, with 15% right, and the easiest question is Q10, with 85% right.

Anyways, I have made quizzes for the other boroughs:

Bronx

Queens

Manhattan

Some of the wordings to these questions leaves much to be desired....

Are there any questions in particular that you remember? I've went back to condense some of the questions for more clarity. I also added some details to other questions.

I noticed that for the Bronx quiz, I accidentally placed the wrong answer as the correct one for the Bx12 question (my mistake). If you remember what you got and you are sure that you had the right answer, then you can give yourself 9 points (most people got that right). Here's a little update on the quiz scores and other stats:

Brooklyn (Take the Brooklyn Quiz Here)

Out of 29 responses, the average is 22/100. The highest score is an 88. The hardest question is Q7, with 3% right, and the easiest question is Q9, with 38% right.

Bronx (Take the Bronx Quiz Here):

Out of 10 responses, the average is 29/100. The highest score is a 64. The hardest questions are Q2 and Q10, with 0% right, and the easiest question is Q8, with 50% right.

Manhattan (Take the Manhattan Quiz Here):

Out of 7 responses, the average is 21/100. The highest score is a 31. The hardest questions are Q6 and Q9 with 0% right, and the easiest question is Q5, with 71% right. 

Queens (Take the Queens Quiz Here):

Out of 12 responses, the average is 30/100. The highest score is a 48. The hardest question is Q6 with 0% right, and the easiest question is Q9, with 67% right.

Staten Island (Take the Staten Island Quiz Here):

Out of 17 responses, the average is a 46/100. The highest score is an 81. The hardest question is Q1, with 12% right, and the easiest question is Q2, with 88% right.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll produce a new update on the current quizzes when I release other quizzes, whenever that is.  Anyways, any questions/concerns/feedback etc can either be posted here or can be PM'd to me.

Do you know the answers to these questions off of the top of your head? Or did you do some research before making it?

For the most part, I had prior knowledge way before even making the quizzes. The ones that I really had to think about questions that were percentages or numbered choices (to make sure I included the right answer).

The only question that probably required me doing some verifying (not even research) is Q4 on the Bronx quiz (because two of the choices come out extremely close to each other).

I've made two new quizzes, both on current Queens bus routes (to see how it compares to the mixed quiz). I'll be releasing two purely historical quiz soon as well.

Queens Bus Route Quiz 1

Queens Bus Route Quiz 2

Hi, here's a little update regarding the other quizzes:

Brooklyn: 

Out of 42 responses, the average is 22/100. The highest score is an 88. The hardest question is Q7, with 7% right, and the easiest question is Q9, with 36% right.

Bronx:

Out of 26 responses, the average is 32/100. The highest score is a 79. The hardest questions is Q10, with 8% right, and the easiest question is Q1, with 58% right.

Manhattan:

Out of 17 responses, the average is 34/100. The highest score is a 67. The hardest question is Q2 with 6% right, and the easiest question is Q5, with 71% right. 

Queens:

Out of 25 responses, the average is 32/100. The highest score is a 48. The hardest question is Q6 with 0% right, and the easiest question is Q9, with 68% right.

Staten Island:

Out of 18 responses, the average is a 36/100. The highest score is an 78*. The hardest question is Q1, with 6% right, and the easiest question is Q2, with 72% right.

 

*The highest score went down because I deleted the previous high score because that person went again and tried again after getting it wrong. Please don't try to cheat, I can tell when one quiz score is low the first time, and then the very next time get almost everything right in less than a minute. I can also compare I.P addresses just to confirm as well, since it gives that info as well.

You would think it'd be setup to prevent users from the same IP taking the quiz again.... But LMAO at the dedication.

@BM5 via Woodhaven - First off, these quizzes are fun. Glad you made them.

Here are my 2 cents on the "Queens Bus Route Quiz #2".....

 

Question 2 - There is a 'super' bus route among your available choices which I'd think would be correct as well.

Question 6 - Any walk under 5 min to the subway is close enough in my book.

Question 7 - That's an interesting one. IMO, the correct answer is a variant of an existing one, but some would say it ins't.

Oh, and for Question 6 on the first quiz, ya got me! That was a good one. Only one of those routes truly ends on their own.

It prevents it only on the same device, but not by IP, unfortunately.

Thanks, and glad to hear you're enjoying them!

Regarding Question 2 on Queens Quiz 2, I've checked again, and there is only one correct answer for that question.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm releasing four quizzes. Two of them are the Queens bus route history Quizzes, and two of them are Manhattan bus route Quizzes (no history).

Queens Bus Route History Quiz 1

Queens Bus Route History Quiz 2

Manhattan Bus Route Quiz 1

Manhattan Bus Route Quiz 2

I'll be working on the Manhattan history Quizzes, plus the four quizzes for each of the other three boroughs left (Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island), so I'll post that along with some stats from the quizzes next time. It'll be some time though, because I haven't started any of those.
