Survey Quizzes & Trivia

Please answer the following questions to the best of your ability. There are no right or wrong answers; these are only opinions (if the quiz tells you there is a right or wrong answer, that was only because I had to choose a box to set up the quiz). The first set of questions will ask about Ebonics. The second set of questions will ask about your demographic information. Thank you for taking the time to complete my survey on Ebonics.
