Entirely Random Quiz

Using randomly generated numbers, I’ve created a truly random quiz. You only have a 25% chance to answer any given question correctly, and it is impossible to know the answer beforehand; you’ll have to guess each time.

Why am I doing this? To establish a baseline score for an entirely random quiz that you may use to determine how well your performance varies in an actual quiz…

1. 5/10 This is a very interesting idea, good job!

• I got the notion when I took a quiz and got everything wrong, then I started wondering about probability and how to test it…

1
• I had a Statistics Professor who said that he’ll give the highest mark on exams to everyone who gets 0 points, because the probability is so low that it means that you know everything and give a wrong answer on purpose. I guess that there are more questions in the exams than in the quizzes here, though.

• Assuming four answers per question, you are three times more likely to get everything wrong than everything right, but getting everything wrong is the next best thing, from that point of view…

2. got 3 out of 10 right!

3. My bad day, I got 2 out of 10 right!

• it was random, so I wouldn’t sweat it…

1
• That’s okay…. Fun is the most important thing!

1
• Then as long as this quiz amused you, the score shouldn’t matter. I just wanted to establish a baseline score

1
• Of course, the score is not important, brother. I did not make a profit or lose anything from a quiz, right? Nor is pride or shame for a high or low score.

4. I just got 4 out of 10. I should have used my first instinct on a few of them.

• So you’ve learned something from my otherwise meaningless quiz?

5. Yikes I only got 3 correct on this one!

• You could take it a few more times and then average your score, but this tells you that if you score three or less on any given quiz, you’d be better off just guessing
