0. What variables do you define for the President's Quiz app?

1. The app has a Next button but not a previous button to let the test taker go backwards. Sketch the blocks for the PreviousButton.Click event-handler (Assume you have a list variable QuestionList , and index QuestionIndex and a PreviousButton for the user to navigate through the questions.

2. Suppose you have an AnswerList variable with answers corresponding to each question, an AnswerTextBox in which the user enters an answer, an AnswerButton that the user clicks to submit the answer, and a StatusLabel where the app tells the user if they are right or wrong. Show the event handler for the AnswerButton.Click event so that the user is notified if they are right or wrong.

4. Explain how you would modify the app into a multiple choice quiz in which the user chooses from answer choices a-d.
