QUIZ QUESTIONS

If you're looking for Quiz Questions, you've come to the right place.

I have 500 general knowledge question's in a format which is ideal for Quiz Masters to use in any way you might choose.

They were compiled over a number of years for a weekly pub quiz which, incidently, became a resounding success.

The questions are of a relatively easy standard as we found that people lose interest very quickly if they cannot answer at least 60% of the questions.

It is also a good idea to keep the whole thing light hearted or else "Exam Syndrome" sets in. ( Boring ) And so, some of the questions are intended to be witty rather than test the competitor's I.Q.

Below is a sample of 20 questions to give you some idea of what the questions are like. These were chosen at random and there is no particular bias towards any one subject. (Sport for example)

End of Sample Questions


Remember, these questions were written for a British audience and so, may prove a bit tricky for an overseas audience. However,,,

,,,a quick and simple way to make questions easier is to make them multiple choice. i.e.....

In which sport would you use a chucker,,,, darts, ice hockey or polo ?

Finally, all these questions have been used on a real audience and as far as I am aware, all the answers are correct. I have also removed any questions which are dependant on time ( i.e. Who is the current prime minister ? ).

I accept no responsibility and will not be held accountable for any mistakes or incorrect answers.
