Do you know The Difference Between a Quiz and a Question ?

I was talking with a friend tonight about this neat website I came across that poses questions to be answered by way of multiple choice. I thought this website would be of interest to my friend because of some of the categories that the questions were shared in but also because my friend loves learning. This particular website is a great place to learn things that you may not of known otherwise. Plus you get paid to answer and pose your own question and multiple choice answers. To my surprise my friends responded that they prefer quizzes to questions. I replied what is the difference between a quiz and a question but did not get an answer. Please tell me, what is the difference between a quiz and a question? Are they not one of the same?

Hi friend, the word 'quiz'(noun) is defined as an informal test, a question, a practical joke, examine someone's knowledge and odd or eccentric person. From the link below you can find more including the origin of the word and is really interesting. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/quiz While 'question' is defined as : a n expression requiring reply,an interrogative sentence or phrase,a problem, subject of discussion etc The following links will give more information on meaning and use of the word http://www.thefreedictionary.com/question http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/question From these two we may conclude, while 'question' is more of a singular nature, a 'quiz' consist of more than one question and the replies are shorter than that of a question. happy new year..

Your reply to the difference between quiz and question is very good. Even I was thinking that both are one and the same. Now I have learnt a new meaning in english. Try to give some more like this. It is easy for me to understand.

well the difference between a quiz to a question is the question includes to a quiz. for an example, the teacher told to the students that their will be a quiz or test tomorrow so you should study those lessons cause the question on the quiz will come to the lessons that we tackled for 2 days. so that is the difference between a quiz and question.
