RE: question

Sorry because I am boring but I am beginner, can you tell me where I need to put this code and how to integrate this code with my data base of question .

RE: question

The code above is to obtain 10 random numbers from 1 - 40. I don't know how you structure your database, but say you have 40 questions in a List; you can use the 10 random numbers as index to pick up 10 random questions.
