  2. In the question and answer file each line has a question and its answer. The answers are always one word.

  3. The question always ends in ‘?’ then there is a space and following that the answer. For example:

    The program should:

  • at the start

    • load the questions and answers from the file

    • print out the number of questions in the quiz

 

  • start asking questions

  • for each question, display a clue (if available, see below); the user has one attempt only, and the program is case insensitive (accepts both lower and upper case answers)

  • after each question display the number of questions asked and the number of correctly answered

   questions so far. Example:   

      Score: 5/7

 

  • at the end store the results in a file quiz_history.txt by appending to the file one line containing:

  • name of the quiz file

  • number of questions answered correctly

  • total number of questions

  • difficulty level

The following difficulty levels should be supported:

  1. No clue is given and only a ‘?’ is shown. Example:

What is the capital of France?

  1. A set of blank dashes separated by spaces is displayed, one for every letter in the answer. Example:

What is the capital of France?

  1. A The first and the last letters are shown. Example:

What is the capital of France?

P - - - S

  1. Two random letters from the answer are shown in their correct position. Example
