Is there any content there among the banners, boxes, summaries, links, user comments, etc.?

I didn't find an actual quiz... like a proper quiz with radio buttons... it looked like maybe some idiot had tried to make a 'quiz' by posting seperate news items with one question in each and then hiding the answers somewhere? WHY? Ten minutes and Javascript (or quizilla) will give you a 'proper' quiz...

That has to be the worst site I've seen for several days.

But how hard would it have been to put all 5 questions in one news article, and all 5 answers in a second one? Would have saved me wasting 5 minutes of my life waiting for all those nested tables and ads to load 11 times.

And how is the answer to question 3 right? I'd say that B or A would be the closest answers but both of them are wide of the mark, but A+C? NO!

Question 5 is surely a mistype, I can see Exchange being an issue choosing between Outlook and Mozilla, but IE and Mozilla?

#5 so why weren't there any quiz before?

If writing were easy, we would have had 100 questions by now. Give the guy credit for even writing the quiz (or write a better one yourself)

What I would do is put everything on one webpage. After each question would be a "Show Answer" input button that would change the visibility property of the answer from hidden to visible. (or you could make the answers come up in popups).
