US License Plates by KlionskyG

Description

Did you drive somewhere over Labor Day? That might have been unwitting prep for this quiz!

Here are 12 slightly redacted photos of license plates issued by American authorities. (To be clear, none are Canadian, Mexican, EU diplomat, etc.) In answering "Where is this licence plate from," you can give either the full name (where spelling should be within reason) or the exact two-letter abbreviation used by the USPS (with no tolerance for errors).


Instructions

Answer the questions below to the best of your ability without using outside resources. Outside references include (but certainly are not limited to) searching for an answer on the internet, looking at maps, using a calculator, or asking a friend (or foe) if they know the answer. Basically, you are relying on your brain (and maybe a pencil and paper).

For each correct answer, you will receive 15 points. You must also mark 5 questions as "money" questions. For each money question that you answer correctly, you will receive bonus points equal to the percent of players who answered incorrectly. (That is, if 25% of players got a question right, its money bonus would be worth 75 points.) You still don't get any points for a wrong answer, though, so try to select the hardest questions you think you have answered correctly. (Note: You can't use outside resources to help pick your money questions either.)
