Explanation:
Quiz est un anglicisme et n'existe par vraiment en français. On parlera plutôt d'un jeu questionnaire.

Questionnaires through which answers are requested about identifying an image, a song, or following a description and so on. Participation to such a quiz often leads to prize winning or are designed to provide answers to surveys.
