    same here
    The only thing i could think was that people modified the screen resolution to get all the questions on 1 page
    But i still could not Read - Digest - Answer 10 questions in 20 seconds , especially as you have to read some of them twice to understand them.

    I have them all on one page And my screen is in portrait mode, so it looks just like the page of a book. Sometimes, I swing it back to landscape, but I generally prefer portrait because it doesn't need so much scrolling - that's just for normal use, not only the quiz.

    Agreed, but you might get this lot tomorrow ... or the next day.

    So, stop finding excuses not to do your homework and learn them
