  • When you decide to guess...

    I bet that everyone's had one trivia test where they didn't know a single answer. you don't

    want to give up so you decide to guess on every question. the likelihood of getting every

    question right in a 10 question test is in a 1 to 1,048,576 chance. the most likely result is you

    getting 2 or 3 correct answers, I know this because you answer 10 questions and there is a 1

    in 4 chance you get an answer correct and 10/4 = 2.5. Is guessing better

    than 'working out the problem' when both time and correct answers matter?

    Not when you don't know any of the answers. In that case it is better to guess and hope for a better time bonus. That is why they give you three categories at the beginning so you can choose the category you know best.
