General Knowledge Trivia Questions – Single Answer or Multiple Choice?

Once of our very popular quizzes is the general knowledge trivia quiz.  Trivia questions are great for the brain, boosting memory recall and mental agility.  We offer two types of trivia quiz; one has single answers and the other has multiple choice.

Which is best?

The debate rages over the answer to that questions but in all reality it comes down to personal choice. Which do you prefer?

Here is an example of each style of our trivia questions.

Q.  Which country has Antananarivo as its capital city?

A.  ______________________________________

Or you might prefer this.

Q.  Which country has Antananarivo as its capital city?

A.  Suriname                  

B. Madagascar

C.  Burundi                         

The first option makes your brain work hard, sorting through memories and pieces of information for the elusive answer.  The second looks easier, doesn’t it?  Yet if you don’t know the answer you still have to sort through the information in your head to see what might fit.  There are often one or two answers you can dismiss but you’ll still have to exercise your brain power to narrow the options and come up with an answer.

How can you polish up your answering skills?

The best way is to pay attention to what is going on around you.

  • Listen to the news and read the papers.
  • Source books on topics you enjoy and on topics you know nothing about. 
  • Surf the ‘Net’ –  your brain will absorb a variety of facts and interesting pieces of knowledge as you wander the internet.
  • Take up a class and learn something new
  • Keep doing our General Knowledge Trivia Quizzes and you will learn something new every time.

So, single answer or multiple choice – which is your favourite?
