Critical Thinking Quizzes & Trivia

Systems thinking allows someone to have a clear view of the patterns and cycles of a system rather than concentration on specific events alone. Over the past week, we have been able to cover much on this topic, and I have prepared a quiz to test just how much you recall. Why don’t you give it a try and see what awaits you?
