Too few chances and choices

On multiple choice questions, I often do them fast and sometimes get it wrong first. I think more tries would be much better, and to make sure there aren't too many guesses, there could also be more choices.

If you got more than one try the chances of guessing the answer right would be too high. Cole Coupland · 3 years, 4 months ago

@Cole Coupland Yeah exactly so I think there should be more choices, like 8. Daniel Chiu · 3 years, 4 months ago

@Daniel Chiu Well, it's awfully exhausting to think of 8 answer choices for certain problems. And having more than one guess would be huge difference! I mean, seriously! Any wacko could just solve 4 easy problems and then just use those points to solve like a Level 5! Finn Hulse · 3 years, 3 months ago

@Daniel Chiu Making eight good choices takes quite a bit more time and can be overwhelming. Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 4 months ago

@Silas Hundt Yeah, I thought about that. It's just that I think that too few choices makes silly mistakes too influential. I am not sure what the best solution is, it isn't too bad now, but I just have trouble with it. Daniel Chiu · 3 years, 4 months ago

@Daniel Chiu Maybe, spend points for another try? Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 4 months ago

@Silas Hundt Yeah I guess that is possible, but as points don't really serve a purpose now it seems like everyone would do that... Will point exchange or something similar come back? Daniel Chiu · 3 years, 4 months ago

Hmm... Pretty sure you get 3 tries before you are ineligible. Or did that get "patched"? Daniel Liu · 3 years, 4 months ago

@Daniel Liu You only get 1 try on multiple choice problems... unless you've discovered some sort of bug. In which case, please tell me how to reproduce it! Silas Hundt Staff · 3 years, 4 months ago
