News makers/news fakers: Test your knowledge

Discover how fake news is spread, why people create it, and what we can do to avoid it.

Well done on getting to the end of the guide. You should now have a better understanding of fake news and how insidious it can be.

The next step is to test that understanding. This quick quiz will show you five news sources where you need to select the correct category of news. Is it clickbait, parody, disinformation or a "real" news story? 

With the understanding you've now gained, you should have no trouble selecting which is which!

Best of luck!
