Lunchtime Quiz: Deciphering the Dewey Decimal

We felt guilty for failing to compose a library-related quiz for National Library Week last week, so we’re making amends today. We love our libraries!
In the days before the Internet put much of the world’s information at your fingertips, the world’s scholars had to find a way to organize the growing number of books.

Can you identify the ten main groups by matching their numbers with their corresponding subject matter? Good luck!
