Do you know your periodic table metals?

(Last modified: November 20th, 2019)

We tested the nation to see if they knew their periodic table metals and whether they could match them to the correct symbols, and the results showed that more than a quarter couldn’t get them right.

Only 3% of 2,002 people tested got every question correct, while more than a quarter couldn’t guess a single periodic symbol for a metal.

People were also stumped by our fake metals, which we hid among the answers.

The fakes included Vibranium, from Marvel’s Black Panther movie, and Carbonadium and Omnium, both from X-Men.

Since so many have been left baffled, we have created a quiz featuring GCSE level questions. Will you fare any better?
