A quiz is a form of game or puzzle in which the players (as individuals or in teams), attempt to answer questions correctly. Quizzes may be on a variety of subjects (general knowledge, 'pot luck') or subject-specific. The format of the quiz can also vary widely.

Some quizzes are multiple choice. A popular strategy on these quizzes is to cross out all the obviously wrong choices, and pick the best of the remaining options.
