Click button 10 for Q1.
If you think you know the answer go for it; if you're right you get 10 points, if you're wrong you get 0 points.

If on the other hand, after clicking button 10 you need another clue, click button 9.
And so on.

The more buttons/clues you click, the less points you get; 10 down to 1.
