Amazing quiz.. This was just Brilliant!!.Well defined questions coupled with explicit explanations!! This deserves my 5 stars indeed!!..
I was really excited to see what would be the corrects answer to the last question. I wonder why you chose option D-the option that says, 'Give me back my 30 minutes.'.. I certainly couldn't choose that and I failed that question. My bad, I guess.
Cool Meerkat author
Sorry about that! I chose that one just to stay humble :) It's really great to hear your positive feedback, I was afraid that it might be too long or too detailed, that's the reason of that answer! I hope the rest of the quiz went fine!

This quiz has simply too much text. Though the topic is good, the quiz itself is pretty tedious.
Cool Meerkat author
Thanks for the feedback.
Even though I will consider your opinion for future improvements, this is a complex topic and it has already been substantially simplified to suit the context format. This quiz is clearly not meant to entertain in a moment of boredom.

If you want to learn something, time and effort should be invested, that's how it works.

Wise man! How I 'invest' my time is best left to me, I'd say. You seem to be under the impression that you not only know best, but only you know best.
Cool Meerkat author
I am sorry if you feel like you have wasted your time on the quiz.
You are right, I shall just accept your honest opinion on that.
