Score Distribution Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What is the sum of all numerical answers in this quiz (including this one)? Do not add the total up more than once; this is not recursive. Add each answer only once (10 numbers).

Since many of these answers depend on each other, I'm just going to step through a solution independent of the order of the questions, using notation of A..J for the answers to questions 1..10 (Q1..Q10). The first thing to notice is that Q1 boils down to the formula: A + everything else = A; hence the sum of everything else is zero.
2. How many questions in this quiz have an answer of True?

Next, look at Q4. Since it's a count that includes itself, D must be at least one. Since it's included in the zero-sum mentioned above, that means something else must be negative, which gives us our first answer - E is False. This narrows down B a little - there are 4 True-False questions, plus a possibility that J is True, so B can now only be from 0-4.
3. Question 1 has the highest numerical answer in this quiz.

Skip ahead a moment to Q8. It tells us that A is a square, and that it must be greater than zero (otherwise H would be undefined; hence not an integer). This also tells us that the average F must also be positive. Since we're getting into averages, I should also mention at this point that there are either 5 or 6 numerical answers, depending on what J is.
4. How many answers are the same as this one (including this one)?

Since F is an integer, A must be a multiple of the number of numerical answers, which is either 5 or 6. I'll call that number N. We know A is both a square and a multiple of N, so for some positive integer K, (KN)*(KN) = A. We also get H = (KN) or -(KN), and F = KN*K. Therefore the sum of all known numerics except A, is KN*K+B+D+H, which must equal zero...
5. All numerical answers in this quiz are positive.

Now we already know F is positive, B is at least zero, and D is at least one, so if J is not numeric, then H must be able to offset at least F+1 in order to get the zero sum; hence it would have to be negative. Plugging into the formula above, we get KN*K+1-KN=0, or KN(K-1)+1=0, or KN(K-1)=-1. We know K is greater than 0, and N is 5 or 6, so this cannot be a {solution;} hence H cannot bring the sum to zero.
6. What is the average of all numerical answers in this quiz (including this one)?

Since H alone cannot bring the zero-sum down to zero, J must be numeric, and furthermore, must be negative; hence N=6. We still don't know if H is negative, but now we have enough information to get C ... since A=F*6, and A is greater than 0, A must be at least 36 (smallest square divisible by 6), making it higher than any other answer could possibly be; hence C is True.
7. The answer to question 4 is greater than the answer to question 2.

We can narrow down B further now - we've shown J cannot be True, and C is True, so B is at least 1 and at most 3. Now to look at D - there are 6 numerics, and at least one is negative (J), so D is at most 5. However, A is at least 36, and so F and H are each at least 6 (if H is positive), so D can't match any of {them;} this takes D down to two possibilities: 1 or 2.
8. What is the answer to question 1 divided by the answer to question 8?

Since the only possible number D can match is B, and B must be in 1-3, we can break this down into cases. If D is 1, B must be greater than one in order not to match. If D is 2, then B must also be 2 because it must match. In both cases, B is at least two, so it cannot be less than D; hence G is False. Since two True-False questions have been False, B must be 2, so the remaining T-F (I) must be True.
9. The answer to question 6 is equal to the difference between answers 2 and 4, minus the product of answers 8 and 4.
