Hey guys I really need some help if you can ASAP, my website is now done and this is the last thing that needs to be sorted....

I seriously need some help. I have added in 80 questions into the database. The website is a learning aid for users like myself who suffer with Dyscalculia. I have chose to focus on Fractions (adding, subtracting, multiplication and division)

The quiz shows all of the 80 and the results show on screen once the user has completed the quiz!

I need some advice, I want the quiz to generate just 20 ramdom questions from the database.. how can this be done? I was talking to someone from my old uni and he said I would have to have a counter (20) and an array to help with this has anyone got any ideas?

This is the quiz code so far....

<?php



session_start();

if(isset($_GET['question'])){

    $question = preg_replace('/[^0-9]/', "", $_GET['question']);

    $next = $question + 1;

    $prev = $question - 1;

    if(!isset($_SESSION['qid_array']) && $question != 1){

        $msg = "Sorry! No cheating.";

        header("location: start.php?msg=$msg");

        exit();

    }

    if(isset($_SESSION['qid_array']) && in_array($question, $_SESSION['qid_array'])){

        $msg = "Sorry, Cheating is not allowed. You will now have to start over. Haha.";

        unset($_SESSION['answer_array']);

        unset($_SESSION['qid_array']);

        session_destroy();

        header("location: start.php?msg=$msg");

        exit();

    }

    if(isset($_SESSION['lastQuestion']) && $_SESSION['lastQuestion'] != $prev){

        $msg = "Sorry, Cheating is not allowed. You will now have to start over. Haha.";

        unset($_SESSION['answer_array']);

        unset($_SESSION['qid_array']);

        session_destroy();

        header("location: start.php?msg=$msg");

        exit();

    }

}
