Quiz Description

The answer to each question is a positive quantity which you have to guess. The closest 50% (counting ties) of players will get credit. Closeness is measured based on the multiplicative factor: if the actual answer is 100 and you put 10 you are off by a factor of 10. If you put 300 instead, you are off by a factor of 3, which is better (even though 300 is farther from 100 than 10 is in absolute difference)
