What’s the Quiz About?
This slideshow quiz shows you images that literally describe a band name. Each slide has 2 pictures right next to one another. Each picture gives you a clue for part of the band name. Using the clues, you must figure out which band the slide is referring to. You have five minutes, which gives you enough time to think about each slide and try to solve the puzzle. As with many quizzes, especially slideshow quizzes, a good strategy is to do a preliminary run through, answering anything that seems obvious to you. Then you can make your way through the slideshow again, taking more time to actually think about what each band could be. Some of them are tricky, so if you get stuck, it might be helpful to move on and come back to it later.
