Re: General Quiz

From the day you joined the forum , I have been helping you with providing  problems  and solutions.

What you say is not true.

That is not the intention. I want to limit the questions and problems with answers and solutions to a limit of two a day. Hope I have made things clear. (You should remember I provide complete solutions and answers which is time consuming.)

Just keep the limit of two questions or problems a day.
