Here's A Version Of The Cognitive Test Donald Trump "Aced" — Can You Get A 13/13?

"Which of these is an elephant?"

Donald Trump recently took a cognitive test, which he apparently aced so spectacularly that even the doctors "were very surprised." The White House hasn't specified which test he took this year, but in 2018 and 2019, Trump's doctors made it clear that the test was the Montreal Cognitive Assessment. Below is a version of that same test. Let's see if you can ace it too.

Trump's cognitive test doesn't perfectly translate to an online format (some answers would need to be drawn in or spoken), so a few questions have been altered for prime online test-taking ability. If you want to quiz yourself on the original, printable version of Trump's cognitive test, click here. If you want a little extra info about the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, click here.
