    Default Help with my program.

    My program is required to have 10 questions from which 5 are chosen randomly without being repeated and shown to the user.
    I have written the program up to the point where I have 5 random questions shown but questions keep duplicating. I wonder if anyone can help me.

    Hi and welcome to the forum.
    Please see the announcements page for tips on forum use.
    Can you paste the code on the forum rather than attach it. It is just easier for people to read that way, and please don't forget code tags.
