```Hey all,

It looks like I started another running debate, the last time I did this, it
went forever it seemed.

Any hints or help on that original question?

For clarity, I'll ask it again:

Why won't it enter the quiz? Here is the code again:

{code}

import random

guess = float(raw_input(a," + ",b," = "))

num1 = random.choice(range(1,10)) ### To limit the numbers chosen from 1-9
num2 = random.choice(range(1,10))

while 1:
q = random.choice(range(15,31)) ### to choose the number of questions
cq = 1 ### To find the current question
correct = 0
while cq >= q: ### To find whether or not to end the quiz.
print cq
cq += 1
print "Correct!"
correct += 1
cq += 1
else:
print "Questions: ",q
print "Correct: ",correct
print "Percent Correct: ",(cq/q)*100
break

print "Goodbye."

{/code}

Thanks for the help in advance,
Nathan Pinno
