When was the last time you did some basic mental math or answered general knowledge questions without making you question your school education? We don’t know about you, but it has definitely been a long time since rapper Badshah did any of those things. So, The Quint decided to test the ‘DJ wale babu’’s knowledge with some simple 6th grade questions. But are they as easy as they sound? Watch the video to find out.


Of the 15 questions asked, Badshah struggled to answer some, rejected others and managed to get a few right. The first question was: How many states and union territories are there in India? Almost immediately came the reply, “I don’t know!” So, well, that’s that.


From photosynthesis to naming the first Viceroy of British India, we are sure these questions made Badshah want to go home and pick up a 6th grade NCERT textbook to brush up his skills. While he struggled with questions on history, geography and social sciences, he seemed to have a strong grasp on science and math. That comes as no surprise though, because the rapper and singer pursued Math at Benaras Hindu University and then went on to do civil engineering.


Good luck Badshah and hope you pass all life’s exams with flying colours!
