This is how the quiz works:

The quiz master asks each question. If anyone knows the answer straight away, they write it down and mark 10 points in the line below and put their pencil down.

If anyone hasn’t got it, read out the the first letter of the answer. They write down the answer and 5 points in the line below and put the pencil down.

If anyone still hasn’t got it, read out the clue provided. Write down the answer, if they get it and 3 points in the line below then put the pencil down.

But if anyone still needs help, read out the A, B, C, D multiple choice answers. If they get it this time write down the answer and 1 point in the line below.

Read out the answer and see who was right, and how many points they got.
