Quizmaster shares 6 questions you need to get right to be smarter than the average Brit

If you reckon your smarter than the rest, then why not take this quick test and find out?

A quizmaster has challenged people to answer eight questions about the UK to find out if they are brighter than the average Brit.

Mahan Lankarani decided to put the knowledge of his followers from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to the test.

Now you might get all high and mighty while sitting on the comfort of your sofa watching The Chase, but this quiz might knock you down a peg or two.

TikToker @mahanlankarani regularly shares fun puzzles on his account for social media users to have a go at.

In a recent video, Mahan wanted to find out if us Brits are as intelligent as we think we are.

So, in order to claim bragging rights, you needed to answer at least six out of the eight questions correctly.

So without further ado, let's take a look at the questions.

Mahan's first question was: "What is the capital of Scotland?"

We will give you a second to stew it over, but believe it or not it isn't Glasgow.

It's Edinburgh.

The next was: "What is the official London residence of King Charles?"

Now this one would be quite embarrassing for a Brit to get wrong.

And, of course, its Buckingham Palace.

Moving onto question three, Mahan asked: "What is the smallest constituent country in the UK? By population and area."

This one might be a toughie if you didn't concentrate in your geography lessons, or if you simply have no clue about the size of demographics.

But the answer is Northern Ireland.

Question number four was: "What organisation does James Bond work for?"

Now we've all watched in awe of the legendary spy's stunts and great escapes, but some might not have been paying attention to who his employer is.

Unless you haven't been paying close attention, its MI6, or the British Secret Intelligence Service.

The fifth question is another test of your patriotism, as Mahan asked: "Where are the crown jewels of the UK kept?"

Think Beefeaters and a stunning view of the River Thames.

That's right - the Tower of London.

Moving onto number six, the quizmaster said: "In which UK town was William Shakespeare born?"

Social media users were stumped by some of the questions. TikTok/@mahanlankarani

Let's hope you retained something from those English Literature lessons and you correctly answered Stratford upon Avon.

Number seven tasked viewers to dig deep in their minds for an answer to: "How many of Henry VIII's wives were beheaded?"

We'll start you off - Divorced, Beheaded, Died...

If you can't remember the rest of the rhyme, the Tudor monarch ordered for two of his wives, Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard, to meet the grisly end.

And the final question is 'What is the longest river in the UK?'

And I admit, I struggled on this one. It's the River Severn.

Social media users took to the comment section to discuss their results - with many admitting that they were stumped by some questions.

One said: "Not me living in England my whole life and only getting one right."

Another said: "I live in the UK and only got five!"

A third added: "1/8... I'm embarrassed."

How did you do?
