Mr Byrnes' Force Challenge

So you think you are all geniuses do you? You think we don't need to study anymore? We can pack up our books and just do practical experiments? I have designed this quiz just to find out how much you all already know.

Well lets find out if you can put your money where your mouth is. Take this quiz, reach the platinum level and you have your wish. Only achieve the bronze level however, and all your bottoms are mine. We will be studying for a very long time!
