A 1912 Grade VIII test of knowledge

test for the eighth grade in 1912

It is almost unimaginable that anyone at any level could pass a test like this. Yet this would have been pretty standard when I was in Grade VIII which was some fifty years after that. Which is why I can answer them now myself but how likely is it for anyone who graduated from high school since the 1970s? Of course, in any trivia quiz I have no idea who wrote or sang any song at all, at least those written since 1973.
