    • load the questions and answers from the file

    • print out the number of questions in the quiz

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

   questions so far. Example:

  • 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:
