Choosing A or B in HSAPQ Bonuses

Postby Hypersmart » Sat May 21, 2016 4:35 pm

I was wondering if there was any advantage in playing A or B for HSAPQ VHSL Question Sets. I generally have a better time playing B, because I feel as they include more science. If anyone has any advice that would be great!

However, the best player on my team knows history and literature which he feels comes up most in A sets. If anyone has any advice that would be great!
The allocation of directed round parts is random, and any perceived distributional quirks are nonexistent over the whole set. There is no strategy involved.

I know this isn't the answer you're looking for, but there isn't any strategy. You should choose according to whatever strikes your fancy.
