Scoring:

For each question answered “A” give yourself 10 rat points. For each question answered “D” give yourself five Rat points.

For each “B” give yourself 10 Yig points, and for each “C” give yourself a bonus one Yig point for just thinking about snakes.

If you have both Yig points and Rat points they cancel each other out. So for instance if you had 80 Yig points but 20 Rat points you would have a Yig score of 60. A person with 70 Rats points and 30 Yig points would have a Rat score of 40.
