What I do, is copy the question and open up a word window and after the 3 questions copy it and paste here. Of course the other day, I hit delete rather than copy. I find it a little easier, I use to write down the question and then type them here.

I am going to start having this window open when I do the questions. I had 3 T/F simple ?'s that I flew through and said I would remember them - guess what - here I am and I don't remember.

One was like losing weight slowly is not beneficial - which we know is false
