At the end it asks "What part of the face was most useful for discriminating between fake and real smiles?". Not really thinking about it I replied the eyes. Having thought about it, it must be more than the "eyes", but I can't put a finger on it.......

Surprised myself with 17/20. It seems that I am too gullible and can get taken in by a fake smile. Perhaps that why I will soon celebrate my 48th wedding anniversary.
