Thank you! Every question is original and has explanations for correct and wrong answers. Not sure why the contest score is 4 so far. Please let me know what the issues are.

> A question states that the sum of two prime numbers is 9, and the multiplication is 14, those numbers are 2 and 7 and it's written at the explanation but, the answer is wrong. The answer should be it's positive difference, wich is 5 and it says it's 4.

> Different ways for people sitting around a round table it says it's 4 people, but name them as A, B, C, D and E.

Thanks for taking the test! You are correct. The prime numbers are 2 and 7 and the answer would be 5. This educational test aims to teach some of the basics of math and multiple choice test taking skills. One of the things student need to know and expect is that mistakes in the questions or the choices does happen in mass tests and exams. You might know how to solve a question and your answer might not be in the choices (due to the mistake of test designer). Some students will retry their solution and come up to the same answer multiple times and this will waste their time for other questions. Taking many tests/exam will teach students these things. This was intentionally done in this educational test to prepare students to expect these things and believe me these mistakes are in almost all mass/main multiple choice exams. In this particular test, you will see the solution and description for the correct answer so you will learn or confirm your correct answer.

The other question you mentioned is another example for these mistakes. In this question, if you assume 5 (A, B, C, D, E) people was the test designers question, the correct answer won’t be in the choices. So, you’ll have to go with 4 (people). All these will make you ready/prepared for these kinda of mistakes/typos in an actual test.

Sacred Ladybird If those mistakes were intentionally (they shouldn't because they confuse) you should say it in explanation, why you wanted to put a question with wrong answer and give the correct answer :)

Stout Shrimp If you mean in the answer description (not the quiz description), yes, the correct answer is described but the intentional mistake is not. That’s a good idea too :-)

This math questions are well thought and very educational. My profession doesnt have that much in depth math involvement but i like math. Please make more quizes for beginners also. Thank you for your educational quiz.
I don't know if the purpose is knowledge or speed or both, but I consider you must give a little bit more time for answers.

Thanks for taking the test! The purpose is both. Some need more knowledge and some need fast calculations.
