    4 Comments on THE ENGAGEMENT RING QUIZ

    1. I just found this ~ and I wonder how surprised you would be to know I got a perfect score? So, do I get my gold star, teacher?

    2. Just noticed this – your Question 13 says:

      “Question 13:

      18k Gold is Stamped 537?”

      But then the answer says:

      Question 13:

      “18k Gold is Stamped 585?

      A) False – 14k is 585, 18k is 750”

      Obviously 537 was a wrong answer, but shouldn’t it have originally said 585, not 537?
