What’s the Quiz About?

The concept of this quiz is easy enough. You have 3 minutes to click A-B-C-D-E in that order, as many times as you can. There are 150 letters to click. Beware, if you make a mistake, the quiz will end. You’ll have to try again if you want 100%. The short amount of time and the large amount of letters made many users make mistakes in their clicking order. Starting off this quiz, you’ll feel confident, like you’ve got this in the bag. You’re going to get that 100%. But when you get to the halfway point, all the letters will start melting together. ‘Is that a B or an E? Maybe it’s a C? What am I even looking for?’ When you get to this point, you need to refocus your eyes and calm down a bit. Take your time, figure out if you’re looking at a B or an E. If you aren’t too frantic in your clicking, you should be able to get the coveted 100%.
