    Ohh - maybe it is! Perhaps we could get a huge grant to research this issue

    I once turned up to a sports day in a top I thought was green (it was our house colour, we were Rome.) and at the end of the 3 events I did, everyone assumed I was in Paris. (Blue...obviously)

    Yep, 10/10.
    Duck/Snake was a bit confusing, but that's because it doesn't really look like either unless you really pay attention.

    10/10 without having to linger on any of them, but my eyesight is pretty good generally too. It's interesting how difficult some find it.

    10/10 here too although as my mother has aged, her perception of colours - particularly shades of blue and red has warped. She will regularly describe turquoise as 'Green' and Red as 'Purple', or even 'Purple' as blue and when I say 'No Mum it's turquoise' she'll argue that it's green even if several others agree with me and the colour is described as 'Turquoise' on the label. She has these ghastly orange curtains in her lounge that she swears are 'pink'. They really really aren't. They are orange. Very very orange. Perhaps my mum is the same as you @witch? She really struggles with shades of blue.

    9/10 and that was only because I didn't concentrate on one.

    1/10. I had no idea about any of them and so all were guesses. However I can easily distinguish traffic light colours.

    Edit: Mrs. DaveP got 10/10. All images were seen easily and replies came without hesitation.

    Mostly because they're a bit abstract - the 'Woman' one was weird. I looked at it for ages before I could see ANY of the options they gave and that wasn't because I had issues with the colours but simply because it took me a minute to understand the picture.
