OK, so I just took a quiz, and for the last 2 questions it gave the exact same interesting info? How could that have slipped by the editors, or the quiz maker for that matter? Or do you suppose that it was just a fluke in the coding? I found that incredibly awkward and I'm not trying to be mean.

Boblarry, what was the quiz ID on that one? We will have a look at it, and get it fixed.

Was it an early quiz? Many early quizzes have exactly the same interesting information for all questions, i.e. nothing! Seriously if you used the 'send a correction' facility, i'm sure it would have been dealt with.

This could be, as you said, a computer glitch. I know there have been more than one quiz that have somehow ended up with the entire question being duplicated.

Ummm... I'm not really sure what quiz it was, but I can find it. It may have just been a computer glitch though. No biggie. I just wonder if anyone else has seen it and gotten confused.

Never mind! I just played the quiz again, and it must have been a computer glitch. Thanks for the responses though.
