Test your knowledge.

IT’S OFFICIAL: JOE Biden was formally confirmed this week as the next president of the United States.

Biden will become one of a few presidents who has also been vice president, having served under Barack Obama between 2008 and 2016.

So to mark the affirmation of his election victory by the US Congress, let’s look at a few others who’ve held either office.

Be warned though: unlike Biden, these people will only have served as president or vice president. Sound easy? Test yourself…
