The questions are usually like:

(2+3) * 6 / 2 - 5 = ?


edit: and the one time I had to answer one, the lady just gave me the answer anyways. I can't remember what it was for though.

Basically, gambling is mostly illegal in Canada, so you have to show you earned the prize with some skill. That's why.

You think Canada's laws are screwy, check out Quebec's.
