    Five, although I thought I'd pressed the right answer for the remote control and the results say otherwise (probably fat-fingering on my part).

    Missing option for #6: aircraft carrier. :wink:

    Question 12 says "Since June 2018, the US Patent Office has issued… patents." The answer is given as 10 million. Seeing as how the 10 millionth patent was granted in June 2018 (228 years after the first patent was granted), I seriously doubt another 10 million have been granted in the last 5 months. Did the question mean "As of June 2018…?"
