How Much Do You Know About Palm Oil

For one of our second year modules, we have to do our group presentation. Our group has the title 'My week without Palm oil'. In order to do this presentation we have decided to create this questionnaire to see how much people know about palm oil. Please answer this without looking for the answers online so our results are as accurate as possible.  in terms of the score, it is not a test to see if you pass or fail it is more for us to get an idea of what people know already and what needs to be pushed for people to become more aware. You do not need to fill in your name if you would prefer to be anonymous just put something random inthank you very much for participating in it and I hope that you are able to learn something from this quiz
