About match question

With the match question type, you can create interactive quizzes where your learner matches different answer options. You can include unlimited number of matching pairs. 

This question type is available for quiz only.

💡Note: Long questions and answers will make it difficult for your learners to read and drag and drop the answer options. Therefore, keep questions and answers short, and don't add more than five match questions at once.
