arrays and files I'd say...

1D array of


to store the questions

2D array of

1..NofQuestion, 1..5 (assuming 4 multiple choice anwers)

for each question, 4 possible anwers. 5th slot is for the correct anwers.

Once chosen, you do something like

if answers(guess) = answers(5) then
put "you're correct"

since you know that 5th always holds the correct answer.
