But in the quiz creation guide lines of PEOPLE I have read that quizzes of 5 questions on some topics are acceptable!

In the Guidelines for Quiz Creation for the People category it says "Your quiz must have at least ten questions". So you cannot create a 5-question quiz.

Also, the quiz creation template simply doesn't let you select a number of questions lower than 10. So even if the guidelines wouldn't have been updated, it still wouldn't be possible.

Which part of the above don't you understand? You have asked a question, you have been given an answer but you won't accept the answer given.

I have played trivia quizzes with only 5 questions. So I have always wondered myself.

You used to be able to create 5 question quizzes.

Please let us know exactly where in the People guidelines it says you can create a 5-question quiz so we can remove this erroneous information.

I checked the People guidelines, and it's not in there.

In the early day of FT it was possible to create five-question quizzes, but this option was first withdrawn in some categories and then abolished altogether. However, existing five-question quizzes online at the time were allowed to stand. Similarly, there is now a requirement that quizzes must have interesting information on all questions. Many older quizzes lack this, but a decision was taken to let these older quizzes remain online. I hope this information helps to clarify matters.
