WATCH: Can You Answer These Basic Questions About India Without Messing Up?

How many countries does India share its land borders with? What is our national sport? Which is India's national bird? These basic general knowledge questions about India sound easy, right?

Folks from a YouTube channel -- Social Clowns -- went around Mumbai asking locals some 'basic GK questions' about their country on Republic Day. They started out confident in the hope that everyone would probably know the answers to these. But their confidence turned to skepticism and eventually to despair when youngsters struggled to answer them.

People messed up the Hindi term for Republic Day, and one man on being asked who the President of India was, said, 'that fellow', while several others generously handed the title to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Bonus tip: If you don't know which Republic Day it is, just say you're from Kashmir. This woman just did.

Well, she also thought she was India's National Bird.


Brush up your GK, folks!
