David has given you a hint about scoring points. Images are more
difficult because you can't display an image directly in the console,
you have to use a GUI toolkit. The EasyGUI buttonbox might do what you
need, or provide a starting point for customization:
Some tips about your program:
Rather than checking for upper- and lower-case versions of the answer,
you can convert the answer to lowercase and just check once, for
A11 = raw_input("...")
A11 = A11.lower()
Do you know about lists and loops yet? Your program would be much
simpler if you kept the questions and answers in a list. For each
question, you could store
answer1, answer1 response, answer1 score
answer2, answer2 response, answer2 score
Then your code would just loop over the questions.
