Task 19: Beat the Clock - Merriska

Post by Adam on Mon 14 Dec 2015, 19:26

You've chosen Literature and History as your 2 categories. I'm going to give you a 10 question quiz in each category. You can select which you would like to complete first. The confidence ranking determines the amount of time you have to complete the quiz. You selected 3 for Literature and 5 for History. So you'll have 3 minutes to complete your literature quiz and 5 minutes for history. But if you truly are an expert in your selected subjects, you should have no problem with them.


You'll add $500 to the group pot for each correct answer. You can post answers one at a time, or all at once. But only answers posted on this thread before your time expires will count.

Which would you like to complete first?
