If you're interested in seeing how tough the contest can be, check out last year's test. The statistics from 2002 show just how tough.

Oh. That's not nearly as bad as the Putnam Competition, where, in 2002, it looks like about 1 in 7 didn't even score on the 120 point test...

whatever happened to that 48 US state flags puzzle that was posted on google answers, and here once without success?

kev23f - I never saw the US state puzzle before - thanks for destroying an hour of my life. From what I can gather, the answer is 'no' but I'm sure someone will post it here if the solution is ever revealed.

Okay, that was really, really hard. Fess up. Who else played, and how'd y'all do?

Me, I got stymied by that corral, obsessed and lost a bunch of time. All in all, I answered 7.5 out of 24.
