Example

Poster#1

Hyacinth macaws are the largesr parrots in the world. Facts or fiction.

Poster#2

Fiction

The largest parrot in the world is a Kakapo

If poster #2 said fact than poster#1 could correct them or the next poster could correct them.

The poster with the correct answer ask the next question.

Always ask your next question weather you are right or wrong.

 

I hope I am clear on this

OK the question

Fiction. You could probably escape an alligator if you ran in a zigzag. You probably also could escape one if you ran in a straight line. But the likelihood that an alligator would ever chase you on dry land is so low that the old adage is more joke than genuine advice. It simply doesn't apply. They don't like to run long distances. It's very rare for an alligator to chase a human on dry land. And the average human could easily outrun an alligator, zigzagging or not -- it tops out at a speed of around 11 miles per hour, and it can't maintain that speed for very long [source: San Diego Zoo].

 

FACT OR FICTION:

 

The hummingbird is the only bird that can fly backwards.

So I will say FICTION

Sterls, that is True.

The American turkey vulture helps human engineers detect cracked or broken underground fuel pipes. The leaking fuel smells like vulture food (they eat carrion), and the clustered birds show repair people where the lines need fixing.
