If you get all of the answers correct, your score is 200% after the first question, 150% after the second, 133% after the third, and so on.

Clearly, the bug is that the programmer initialized the number of right answers to 1 instead of 0.  So after one question your score is 2 correct out of 1 total, or 200%.  After two questions it 3 out of 2, or 150%.  After three it is 4 out of 3, or 133%.  After 15 it is 16 out of 15, or 107%.

Not very intelligently designed.  I wonder if DaveTard coded it?

And the set of natural numbers is also the set that starts at 0 and goes to the largest number. -- Joe G
