I had a lot of time left (6:49) and I'm not super fast with quizzes, so I think it can be shorter if you want, but doesn't need to be.

OK, good to know thanks. I'll just leave it long. I guess it's not a quiz where you can try every answer from a set until you get the right one so it can't really be too long.
