The Question class would contain a List<String> for the answers and an int of which answer is correct You main class would shuffle the Question list ... Collections.shuffle( questionList ) ...

You could add another layer of abstraction by having an Answer class. An Answer class would have a String for the question and a boolean to flag the correct answer. In this way you could also shuffle the answers.

So you most likely need to consider of moving to Objectville. Have you learned about writting classes yet?
I can't remember in which book I've seen such problem, I think it was in one of: either "Head First Java" or Cay Hortsmann "Java for Everyone, Late Objects". If I'm not mistaken, there are good suggestions and hints how to implement it in object oriented way.
If you're thinking to move along with this app further, you could try to look up for those books in your local library.
Campbell Ritchie wrote:The answer is really simple: get some objects and beat them into submission. Create a Question class which encapsulates both question and answer. When you sort/search/randomise the questions, all the answers will follow.

Difficult to determine if you chose right approach in general, for solving that problem.
Could you please specify how that test question sounds?
 I am sorry, I misread your post. I thought you're solving test, it appears you're creating one.
Still, question remains similarly, do you have whole idea what your program is supposed to be doing? Could you please explain a bit more about it.

Note that it is Java convention to have classnames begin with a capital letter along with subsequent "words" rather than using underscores. Making your class name KristersDrozds3.
