Um, how do you tell the system which answer you choose as you tab through?

Tab moves you from question to question. Arrow keys move your selection up and down within the available answers.

So:
Quote
1. Question blah blah
* answer
* answer
* right answer
* answer

2. Question blah blah blah
* answer
* right answer
* answer
* answer

3. Question blah
* answer
* answer
* answer
* right answer

4. Question blah blah
* right answer
* answer
* answer
* answer

5. Question blah blahblah
* answer
* answer
* right answer
* answer

Keystroke combo would be:
Click on 1 c.
Tab, down (selects 2 b)
Tab, down x3 (selects 3 d)
Tab (selects 4 a)
Tab, down x2 (selects 5 c)
Enter (submits quiz)

I recommend practicing with some dummy quizzes over on Funtrivia first so you get used to the mechanics. ;)

Rule #1: Never read the question. Look for one or two key words and answer it. If you have to read the entire question, you probably don't know the answer anyway.

Whole bunch of neglected topics. About time really. Only the Sports section is missing from this horror show, although we've done Sports twice. I don't know as we've ever done World: Australia before!

Very challenging!  Let's hear it for the Europeans and the Aussies to sweep this month!

Is it cheating (or am I just lucky) that 3 of the shows they asked about ones that I have worked on in the past couple years??
