Quiz: Can You Guess These World Landmarks From The Photos?


0

Are you smart enough to name all of these international landmarks?

The world is full of wondrous and amazing things, landmarks that we all know by name. Some of these were made by men, and some by nature. But how many landmarks can you name from an image? Do you know Ellis Island, the first port of call for refugees seeking a new home in America during the first half of the 20th century? Or Denali, the tallest mountain in America that was temporarily named after one of its least influential and most forgettable presidents? How about the Empire State Building, which, no joke, as a child in New Jersey my father-in-law believed was called the “Entire State Building” and contained the entire state of New York? Or the Space Needle, once the tallest building west of the Mississippi? So how many landmarks can you name from just a picture? Do you know the Grand Canyon from the Statue of Liberty, or do you think both of them look like the Great Barrier Reef? You probably won’t do as well as you think you will — people are rarely as smart as they believe themselves to be when it comes to these things. Think you can prove us wrong? Take our quiz and find out!
