Brain Sprint - Wrong choice of answers


 Posted 20 days ago More by Helen E.

Question was - Which country did Cheescake originate from?. The correct answer is Greece, but Greece [b]was not an option[/b]. So you lose the points by selecting a wrong answer anyway! I am enjoying this game but finding there have been a number of WRONG answers. The History of Cheesecake and Cream Cheese - ThoughtCo https://www.thoughtco.com › ... › History & Culture › Inventions › Famous Inventions Apr 16, 2017 - Cheesecake is believed to have originated in ancient Greece. Historians believe that cheesecake was served to the athletes during the first Olympic Games held in 776 B.C.

Ive only played the game once and l only lasted 3 questions. It (the game) wanted me give up 1 TCredit to continue playing. The other trivia game Knockout Trivia, the system tells you you can contine playing for just 1 TCredit. Even if you lose you still win a 10 Rewardicals. Good luck playing Brain Sprint.

Yes Helen, you're right. I don't remember which question was, but I know that I was surprised when I saw an answer that was not offered at all. Thought that it was only one, and that only happened to me. Hope they will check questions and offered answers, once again.

I remember that question. Indeed, we could make a thread featuring all the mistakes we have found. For example, this one was wrong: Q: How many countries eventually made up the Allied forces of WWI? A: 32 Actually the WWI involved 32 countries, 27 ( or 28, depends on the author) of which supported the Allies.

[quote=1409391]As with the other games, submit a ticket and they can remove the question.[/quote] Yes, if we can confirm an answer is wrong, we'll remove it. But let me remind everyone that you can definitely find sources on the Internet that disagree on many topics. So, just because you found a source that says one thing...it doesn't [u]necessarily[/u] mean it's right...or wrong. Hopefully instances of this are rare, but it CAN happen.

I have come across several wrong answers too. Although it's frustrating to see that tip "You can use the Internet to search for the answer" and I think "Yes, I did!" I also usually just brush it aside thinking that we're all experiencing this and it just adds to the challenge. But yes it would be nice if all correctly chosen correct answers were in fact marked as correct - perhaps I'll start writing them down and submitting them to support.
