Common Multiple Choice Mistakes
"One difficulty I have noticed for quizmakers at this website is in the creation of incorrect answers for multiple choice questions. Below I will demonstrate how not to make your multiple choice questions dead giveaways!"
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
A very common error when it comes to selecting incorrect multiple choice answers arises with number answers. I will demonstrate the error while employing a real question. Using either your knowledge, or logic, select the correct choice. Question: How many countries directly border the United States?
Another common multiple choice error will be presented here. Keep an eye on the presentation of the answer choices. Question: Which of the following is not one of the major component bases of DNA nucleic acids?
Very similar to the problem in question two, here is another frequent 'giveaway' as presented in the multiple choice answers to the question below. Question: Which of these fruits does not grow on trees?
Another with a similar theme, one answer *appears* different from the others. Decide which based on this question: Which of these 'Great' kings or emperors ruled first in chronological history?
Here's a problem involving names. Using logic (and your own knowledge), try to detect the correct answer to this question: Who was the author of the novel 'Sons and Lovers'?
D. H. Philby
D. H. Lawrence
Here's another very common problem with multiple choice answers as they pertain to peoples' names. See if you can pick out the correct answer here. Question: Which famous Austrian-born German scientist was forced to leave Germany in 1938, and spent his last year in London before succumbing to cancer in 1939?
D. H. Lawrence
This is a tricky one you might not have thought of previously. What is the giveaway answer to the following question: Which of these areas of study is considered a member of the family of 'Earth Sciences'?
All of these
Which of these would make the most sensible choice, as a quiztaker, even if the answer is not simply forthcoming, based on the following question: In the movie 'The Fisher King', what is the eventual fate of Perry, the character played by Robin Williams?
He goes to jail
He moves away
He comes out of a coma, regains his memory and reunites with his girlfriend Lydia
True or false: On average, it takes more effort and thought to create a good multiple choice question than it does to make a good fill-in-the-blank question.
True or false: All Quizzyland quiztakers prefer multiple-choice questions to fill-in-the-blank questions.
