Are you smarter than a first grader???

My first grade son has been asking me lot of questions lately.Some of them , I have to google the answers.

See if you can give answers to the following questions in seconds..If you cannot, it would be good if you revise some science/history books…

 1. Why does Sun rise in East?

2. What is a leap year?

3. How many weeks are in a year?

4. What was the first coin to be made?

5.What is solar eclipse and lunar eclipse?

6.Why do we have continents? How many are there?

7. Who started the English letters?

There are a lot more…I can only think of these right now 

If you were able to answer them in seconds….You are SMART!!!!
