NOT trying to boast or anything - but since we went into lockdown, we've become pretty damn good at quizzes.

Well, at least that's what we thought until we gave this tricky test a try. (Try saying that 10 times over.)

Over the course of the past 10 weeks, Sky has created the National General Knowledge Test which consists of "100 essential quiz questions everyone should be able to answer."

But if that didn't sound hard enough, players have now voted for 10 trickiest questions - so will YOU be able to answer them correctly?

The questions are designed to put your history, geography and science knowledge to the ultimate test.

So the next time you're asked to come up a general knowledge round for a Zoom quiz, you know what to do...
