    Break the Quiz Meaning

    Hello,


    Regarding answering quiz. A few of my clients said "I broke the quiz" on my website coming from UK individuals. What does the phrase mean?

    It sounds odd to me, but I guess they did well on the quiz.

    It is informal, at best. I advise learners not to use it.

    I'd guess they meant "broke" literally: the quiz on your site stopped working.
    I am not a teacher.

    What clients? What quiz? Why are they telling you this?

    We need more information about the situation before we know for sure what it means.
