Multiple Choice ESL 1950s Slang Quiz

A 25 question multiple choice quiz to introduce ESL students to the idea that words have multiple meanings, and they change over time. This quiz focuses on words that had new meanings in the 1950s, and are still in use today. I did deliberately chose not to use too much dated slang, and for words like ‘bread’ the alternatives are also definitions for bread, but they are formal ones.
Personally I use this as part of a class on the development and changes in the English language
