  1. Prague Spring
    Bhopal Disaster
    Prohibition Begins
    Everest first climbed
    India gains independence
    Chernobyl disaster
    Nelson Mandela released

  2. Chernobyl vs Handover of Hong Kong.

    Apparently Hong Kong is correct since I chose Chernobyl and got it wrong

  3. Another set:
    What year was the sinking of the Lusitania? (1915)
    India gains Independence (1930)

    Answer: India gains Independence.

  4. “Cuban Missile Crisis Ends” was the wrong answer for me. It just depends on the random option given.
    “Handover of Hong Kong” was the correct answer in my set.

  5. Handover of Hong Kong
    End Of World War II
    I Have a Dream speech
    Prague Spring
    Pearl Harbor Attack
    India Gains Independence
