Updated for version for a Civic test

Hi can you please update the Civic Test for 2018

Disappointing

I am unsure how to use this. It asks a question and presents 4 choices however no correct answer is given.
Is it meant for people who can’t read or have a visual disability? Otherwise I’m unsure how this is meant to help. You can listen to it and learn all the options available to each question without learning which is the right one.

pech Nhek ,

Thank you 🙏

Yes 👏 thank
