Take the High / Low Quiz

 

This quiz is similar to the feature on the show the Price is Right, where the contestants were given a price for an object and had to guess if the price was too high or too low.  In this quiz you'll be given a statement of fact that has been exaggerated either too high or too low.  Decide if our quoted number is too high or too low and write down your answer.  How well can you do?
