In the UK, thousands of children are about to sit their SATs. The test is aimed at 11-year-olds, but a study has now revealed that a lot of adults are completely thrown by the questions, which are aimed at testing literacy and numeracy.

Educational site Explore Learning asked adults to test their own knowledge against their children's and found that more than 40 percent of parents were unable to answer the literacy parts of a pared-down test.

More than a quarter of the 4,000 parents they asked to take part failed to answer half or fewer of the questions correctly, with testees failing on basics such as identifying the adjective in a sentence. 

Over 80 percent of those that took part failed to get full marks.

So how do you fare? Take the test below. Click on the cards to flip and reveal the answers.
