  1. Got a whopping 11 out of 11 with a little help from google. Some of them I knew like a couple of waterfalls, Egypt and the mountain gorillas. It was a great quiz. Congratulations on fixing your errors it seems according to the other comments below. BTW beautiful and gorgeous pictures…

    • Good for you and thank you for taking the quiz, I have since edited two of my quizzes and I am happy about that. Getting photos for quizzes is not easy because some are too big and some too small so it is always hit and miss

    • There is no way it can be edited I believe I will just have to see if I can do another one that comes out all right and I always check them out several times if it happens once more I will have to ask admin what is going on and will probably have to scrap the ones the are incorrect Kim,

      • You can get over the minor mistakes of yesses and nos. I loved the quiz but wasn’t able to complete it.
        This will be painstakingly but it’s effective. When you fill a question in the question bar, delete the yes and no then click draft. Go back to the question then insert the choices then click draft. You’ll repeat this till the last question.
        When you have finished click the preview. You will notice if there are any errors. If there are, you’ll notice an edit button at the end of post. Click it to edit then click preview. If everything is okay, click submit.
        It’s now possible to edit posts but I haven’t checked on quizzes.
