Graded Programming Activity
Creating a Trivia Game


Topic Covered



In this activity we would like you to use lists to create some variation on a trivia contest, gameshow, or personality quiz. List are a helpful element of a program like this because you have different types of data

where the position in the list of items organizes what goes together. For example, in our lesson activity we explored creating a state capital trivia game where "Iowa" was the 15th item in the state list and "Des Moines" was the 15th item in the capital list. One could easily imagine a collection of six lists - question, answerA, answerB, answerC, answerD, key. And the 2nd item in these lists might be "Which sport uses a hoop", "Baseball", "Basketball", "Football", "Soccer", and "B" respectively.

While you need not follow this model exactly, in this assignment you will make a "trivia game" with several questions, each of which has several answers to choose from.
