Well, a lot of these objects aren't things you would see every day of your life, or never have their "proper" names used, so don't beat yourself up too much for missing them. You'll get 'em next time!

C+, Awful With Objects

wikimedia.org
Right!
Well, a couple of the items here stumped you, but overall you still proved you're objectively great at naming objects! Life experience has clearly taken you a long way, as that's the only true way to be a master of object names given how little you'd see some of these items in your life, or hear about their "proper" names. Great work!

B+, Objectively Great!

wikimedia.org
Right!
You sure know your objects - from random and obscure, to items that people may see often but forget the names of. We're quite impressed with your inability to be stumped. Not too many people would know the names of half these items, let alone the number you'd need to get this score. Great work!

A+, Objectively Amazing!
