The order answers appear on the worksheet are randomised, with the following exceptions: "True" will always be the first choice, "False" will always be the second choice, "All of the above" will always be the last choice.
Use the "True" and "False" buttons to automatically pre-fill fields to create a true/false question.
Use the Automatically create distractors... feature to save time! This works particularly well if you use questions that have similar answers to each other, such as numbers or definitions for words.

Use as a comprehension exercise after or while watching a DVD.
