Can you pass the tour guide test?

In order to be a tour guide in the City of Charleston you must receive a license that, among other things, requires you pass a written exam of 200 questions, and get at least 80 percent right. Once you pass that, you qualify for the oral test where a tour bus takes you to a random area of town where you must act as a competent guide for three minutes.

The questions are matching, multiple choice, and true and false. Live 5 News offers a few sample questions:
