Maybe I'm the one to blame. If so, then I discovered a bug. I think I had been first who entered the quiz, ran shortly over it, and then wanted to know the results without doing the quiz and hit "submit" on an empty list. As a result, the first question had vanished, so I had to refresh to get it back.Something appears to be broken. Anyone not getting a score when you press submit?
I hate AJAX. It's a nightmare to debug and update ...There is an issue with the AJAX submission thread. I have reverted to POST and it works again. Enjoy! Post those scores!
Yes I will correct, thanks!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...?"
am in accounting and of course dates and ranges of are "important", I understand "as of" to mean the same as "since", I get what is meant, but if i interpret it literallyQuestion 12 says "Since June 2018, the US Patent Office has issued… patents."

Are you sure? I used Wikipedia also, and I find 1891.I protest against Edison. IMO Bouly (patent 1892, acc. 1893) resp. the Lumières (1894, renewed Bouly's patent, demo 1895) were first, maybe Anschütz (1885, 1894) or Reynaud (1892), but not Edison (1894).
Edison's patent on the kinetoscope was granted in 1897 with "Application filed August 24, 1891. Serial No. 403,534. "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Edison#Motion_pictures said:Edison was also granted a patent for the motion picture camera or "Kinetograph". He did the electromechanical design while his employee W. K. L. Dickson, a photographer, worked on the photographic and optical development. Much of the credit for the invention belongs to Dickson. In 1891, Thomas Edison built a Kinetoscope or peep-hole viewer. This device was installed in penny arcades, where people could watch short, simple films. The kinetograph and kinetoscope were both first publicly exhibited May 20, 1891.
Poor Edison. In his later years, he spent much of his fortune defending his 1093 US patents , and 1239 patents in other countries. Those numbers are exceeded only by the number of denials of Edison's precedence, and claims that Edison "stole" other people's ideas. He seldom lost in court, but he also seldom succeeded in collecting royalties in Europe. That entire period in the history of patents sounds chaotic and anarchistic.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinematograph#Invention said:Louis Lumière worked with his brother Auguste to create a motion-picture camera superior to Thomas Edison's kinetograph, which did not have a projector. The Lumières endeavored to correct the flaws they perceived in the kinetograph and the kinetoscope, to develop a machine with both sharper images and better illumination.
