I thought that ALL fill in the blanks quizes had to go into that category. I have noticed more and more frequently FITB are showing up in other categories. What gives?? :S

Probably just a slip by the editor not checking the category the quiz is in. Also, some FITB questions are allowed in regular quizzes - there's a formula we try to adhere to about placement. But if you see FITB quiz somewhere it clearly doesn't belong, please fill out a support ticket and the quiz will be moved eventually. Thanks!

Some people incorrectly use the FITB format. I often ask people to restructure questions that erroneously use it. But that is up to the individual editor.

A real FITB question is like:

Beatles Song: She _____ You

An incorrect use might be:

The thing that hangs inside a bell is the ______

It would be better if it were worded something like this:

What is the name of the thing that hangs inside of a bell?

This would also make it look better in a non-FITB category.
