This comment contains hints. Select to see them (not sure about mobile).These are not comprehensive.

#5 and #20 can each be answered without looking at any other question

Looking at #10 and #16 will give you the answers to both.

Looking at #6 and #17 will allow you to eliminate answers from each. #2 will clarify them.

Reading #7 will eliminate answers from #8. I am not saying you will be able to answer #7.

Use #3, #4 and #8, together.

Those will also help you answer #12, #15, and #13.

Knowing #13, allows you to eliminate answers from several questions.

#2 is your friend. Consider its implications to will help you eliminate answers on many questions .

You know how many questions are on the quiz, and which ones are vowels or consonants.

I probably will put together a comprehensive solution and post it on reddit.

If I could set the time to a week, I would.

with the hints, shortening the time would be a good balance

I just read the hints, and I can't agree, in fact Q5 was one of the last ones I could answer, same qith Q7 & Q8

Sorry if it didn't help.

Solve the Questions that are opposites, or have an easy to determine answer first i.e, 20, 10,16,17,6,5.

Make Assumptions and eliminate that way.

KEEP TRACK OF THE NUMBER OF EACH ANSWER YOU HAVE!!!

Then as I entered in the answers, I read them aloud and rolled my eyes! Lol.

Well done!!

My favorite part was when the lightbulb went off for me on Question 12 and I realized it had to be A. Based on question 8, the total number of consonant answers had to be 12, 13, 14, 15, or 16.

If it was 13, it would be a prime number, but also an odd number. Can't be two valid answers.

If it was 15, it would be divisible by 5, but also an odd number.

If it was 16, it would be a perfect square, but also an even number.

So it had to be 12, or 14, meaning A (even) was the correct answer over B (odd).

So simple but so deceiving if you don't really examine it!

Once I had all the answers I started the time, which is why technically it took me less than two minutes.

PS

The second hint (about question #8) is very tricky, I had to ignore it to end up giving all the right answers.

Maybe it would make more sense for you to help me understand your conclusions (which you are obviously attempting) and then I can move you toward or away from certain ideas. And on the questions you're mentioning, maybe say what you've eliminated. There is as much value sometimes in determining which answers can't be true as in which must be true. I will see what I can come up with based on what you said, so far.

WT2008: Shouldn't the answer to question 9 be "A", since the answer to question 10 is "A"?damoz7: which isn't the same as the answer to question 9Based on your questions so far, I am not clear on how you became certain of the answer to #9. What leads you (WT2008) to the conclusion that it should (or should not) match #10, or (damoz7) that it should (or should not) match #13? These are both rhetorical (encouraging to work these out) and actual (help me understand your logic).

Is there something we're missing in that logic?

Now I'm with you.

Therefore, an answer of A for question 9 is trueI would say that, at that point in the puzzle, an answer of A for question 9

still couldbe true, because #10 is A and you can't rule it out. Because #9 also has "D) 13" as a choice, and #13 is D, you can't rule that out either. Likewise, if B as not been eliminated from #11 on your board, or C from #12, or E from #14, those could be the next ones with the same answer.The next question (after question 9) with the same answer as question 9 is question 10.Or, to put it another way, the next question (after question 9) with the same

potentialanswer as question 9 is question 10. But you don't yet know the answer to #9.If this doesn't make a lightbulb go off, I would suggest looking at the relationship between #12, #13, and #15. And to get #12, #8 will help, if you have been able to eliminate things from there.

onlytwo" as "Thefirsttwo". Otherwise I would have got it all correct and it'd be much simpler to solve.By the way I disagree with the first hint: how do you know for sure the answer to number 5?! I don't think you can assume it's E because for example question 19 has 5 correct answers (but of course only one fits with all other clues) so similarly question 5 has E as an obviously correct answer but it doesn't mean it's the one you have to select.

E must always be true to question #5 because #5 has the same answer as #5. Each question only has one answer, so that renders A thru D untrue. Therefore, we gain the additional insight that questions #1 - #4 cannot be E (otherwise, again, there would be more than one answer to #5).
