The Aiken format is a very simple way of creating multiple choice questions using a clear human-readable format. The question must be all on one line. Each answer must start with a single-letter character, followed by a period '.' or a bracket ')', then a space. The answer line must immediately follow, starting with "ANSWER:" and then giving the appropriate letter. Here is an example of the format:
