I found the quiz silly. On question one (I answered C), how can you give someone a question, three answers and then say the answer is SAMPLE SIZE MATTERSSSSSS!
Question two I answered A which I thought most people would.
Question three I answered A,E.
Question four I answered Yes.
Question five I answered A-B.
I don't think any of those are "wrong", and I think especially question five is retarded. It might be better if it was 100% to receive $500 or 75% to receive $1000.
If his point is as you say is humans don't think about EV enough then that'd be a good point. I think there are probably better questions than these though to prove that.
This whole post sounds hostile when I read it back, but I didn't intend it that way. Smiles.
