    Default Java Quiz help


    I have to create a multiple choice quiz based bored game for an Assignment but I'm having some trouble. I've read over the internet that it would be easier to store the questions/answers in an Array but I'm quite clueless as to how i would go about this?

    Ideally I would like to ask the first user a question and provide the user with 4 answers to pick from and then allow the next user to do the same, while counting there score...

    Could someone point me in the right direction please? Or provide some insight

    When you read an array to store questions/answers would be easier, I wonder easier than what?

    I suggest you create a QuizQuestion class in which to store the questions with their answers which also indicates the correct answer and the value or complexity of the question should they vary. You could then store the QuizQuestion instances in a collection of some sort, even an array.
