  • QUIZ OF THE MONTH (Hard) - May Answers

    This is a new feature that we are introducing. The Quizzes will contain questions from a broad variety of subject matters pertaining to Jamaica. The quizzes will be ranked by thier degree of difficulty:

    EASY - designed for new visitors to Jamaica, it will allow visitors to gain new knowledge about out beautiful country.

    MEDIUM - Repeat visitors as well as Jamaicans should have little problems answering this set of questions.

    HARD - For experts, but most can answer with some research or access to one's granny or aunty.

    The questions are presented in the 'poll' format. This prohibits the temptation to look at the previous answers, and will show if the majority got the questions right or not. At the end of the quiz period, answers will be provided. Each question has three multiple choice answers, only one answer is allowed. Results of other users can be views after submitting your answers, however keep in mind that other's answer can be wrong!

    Your feedback on this new feature is appreciated.
