    HaHa -- blind leading the blind.


    Code:
    				if 
    					(correctans=answer)
    					printf("Correct.");
    				    counter1++;
    				else
    					{
    needs a few more braces -- and better coding style. Use == instead of = when boolean operator is intended.
    Code:
    				if (correctans == answer)
    				{
    					printf("Correct.");
    				    counter1++;
    				}
    				else
    				{
    					if(correctans != answer) 
    					{
    					    printf("That is not correct, please try again.");
    					    printf("\n\t\t\tWhat is %d times %d?: ",num,counter);
    						scanf("%d",&answer);
    					    correctans=num*counter;
    					}

    >>main()
    Main returns an int

    >>printf("\t\tYou have selected the %d times able.",num);
    Being picky I know, but typo, should be table

    >>if (correctans=answer)
    That should be == when testing for equality; same problem on line 53

    Your indentation is a bit all over the place which'll make it harder to follow; as far as I can see there's nothing wrong with the logic (I just scanned through the syntax, however).

    EDIT: Damn you AD!
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.
