    Please read ... Homework Policy

    Give it your best shot and when you get stuck post your code and we'll see what we can do.

    Generally adding scoring is simply a matter of initializing a couple of variables that count the number of right and wrong answers.

    No. Read the homework policy.

    We are not here to write your programs for you and this is not a "free code" dispensary...
    Try to do this on your own. If you get stuck (really stuck, not lazy stuck) post your code.

    How would you implement scoring without a computer? Let's say you asked the 10 questions to someone and then you were going to grade them, what is it that you would do?

    Show us what you're capable of doing for yourself at the moment.

    For example, if all you can do is print the entire file without stopping, then show us that code, and make your question "how to I stop..."

    If you can read each question, and display answers, but don't know how to flag the correct one, then do that much.

    And so on.

    Then we help you with the bit you're really stuck on.

    Oh, and I fixed the title to be something less vague.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    @jaralvarado ... it's not that we don't want to help you. It is that we want you to demonstrate that you are making an effort on your own. If you are sincerely interested in learning C and programming, you will show some ambition... To try and fail is far better than to not try at all.

    Ok, we'll be here!

    The thing is that, in the learning phases of programming, the worst thing you can do is use other people's codes (what we call "Scoop and Poop" programming). That's not how you learn... you learn by doing, by having to think it through, by struggling with it. Those lessons will stay with you... that nice bit of copied code will not.
