    • I do not give all the answers and I also figure that people will realize to pay attention to the introduction. Some of the information about the state I have to give because it offers a look into its history. If you think I should do things differently I can do that too but all the answers are never given. Maybe if you recognize the photos then yes on those questions. In other words, you think it is not worth it to take the quiz if the answers are there time to rethink.
