To start off, we have the category ‘multiple choice’. You can actually divide it into two sections; multiple choice answers with text and multiple choice with image answers. First I will tell you something about the multiple choice answers with text and give you some examples with it.

Multiple choice 

With the multiple choice category, you are able to have up to 10 answer options. And even have more than one correct answer. Here are some examples on how to create multiple choice questions.


Choose the right option:

  • Mississippi
  • Misissippi
  • Missisippi

Turns the earth around the sun?

  • Yes
  • No

What colors does the rainbow have? (give multiple correct answers)

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Indigo
  • Purple
  • Violet
  • Pink


You are able to ask the same questions as the written multiple choice questions, BUT you can also add images :) There are three types of image questions:

Small images: this type of question offers more room to put on text

Medium images: images are large and you’re able to put some text below the image

Large images: only images and no room for text

Fill in the blanks

  • “Who is the founder of Facebook?” The answers is “Mark Zuckerberg”, but another answer possibility which is also correct is “Zuckerberg”. You are able to write down multiple correct answers. Besides having multiple correct answers possible, it’s also possible to set a percentage of the answer that is allowed to deviate (answers could be case sensitive).
  • Another possibility is to add an image and ask a question about that image. For example adding a picture of a certain flower and you can ask what kind of flower it is.
