FlexiQuiz makes it easy for you to create a quiz with multiple choice questions. 

A multiple-choice question (MCQ) is a form of assessment in which participants need to select the correct answers from a list of options. Many different types of quizzes use multiple choice questions including, aptitude tests, exams, pub quizzes, entrance exams, compliance testing and many more.  The multiple-choice question format can also be used for other types of tests such as True/ False or Yes/ No.
