When Hayley Roettger told her friend, Karan, that she was absolutely “Vine cultured,” she never expected that he’d come back with a full-on Vine AP exam to make her prove it. Karan, however, immediately knew that he’d have to test her knowledge. “She brought up how she was a ‘Vine god,’ so I nodded my head and I knew that I was going to create a test,” Karan told Select All. Roettger’s tweet about the test quickly went viral. “It took around two hours, and my process included just the Vines I knew from the top of my head,” Karan, who calls himself a “Vine demigod” said. “Then I just searched famous Vines and watched a few of them to get inspiration to create questions.” He wasn’t sure exactly how many questions Roettger got right — the exam included 43 multiple-choice questions and several free responses — but “she got a five for sure.” Karan posted the exam on Twitter — complete with a “Karan Board” logo as a stand-in for College Board — with an answer key. We’ve laid out the questions below (reproduced as they appear on the original test), so you can test your knowledge and see if you, too, are a Vine god.

Facebook employees are staging a rebellion over Mark Zuckerberg’s refusal to act against Donald Trump, expressing their dissatisfaction with their boss on social media in a rare display of dissent from within the company.
Disagreement came from employees at all levels of the company, including some senior staff. Particular criticism was levelled at Zuckerberg’s personal decision to leave up the Facebook version of a tweet sent by Trump in which the president appeared to encourage police to shoot rioters. By contrast, Twitter hid the message behind a warning.
Andrew Crow, the head of design for Facebook’s Portal video-phone, tweeted: “Giving a platform to incite violence and spread disinformation is unacceptable, regardless who you are or if it’s newsworthy. I disagree with Mark’s position and will work to make change happen.”
