The following is less a spelling test and more a test of your knowledge of homophones.

Homophones are words that have the same pronunciation but different meanings, and spellings.

To be clear, not everything in this test is a homophone, but most are similar, if not exact, in pronunciation.

So really, it's about picking the right word and meaning, based on context.

The quiz is ambitiously titled:

No One Can Score 19/19 In This Impossible English Spelling Test

This claim seems a bit dubious...

Regardless, it's going viral on Playbuzz.

The test, made by Terry Stein, also claims:

This test was given to 40 high school students and no one got more than 9/19 correctly, which means no one passed.

We can't independently verify this, but the question remains - can you pass it?
