The most basic way to get started is to create all your screens in a paint program, leaving areas black that you want text to appear.

These images can all be loaded into DB once at the start of your program and pasted onto the screen when required - using Load Image and Paste Image.

The Text command would place the questions/answers in the areas left blank.

The questions and answers would be stored in string arrays and chosen/displayed at random.

Every one of these topics is covered in the help files (press F1) and the beginners tutorials here:

http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=99497&b=10

So, if you are new to programming, I seriously suggest that you go through them - especially the subject of program layout so you start your programs off correctly.
