To allow others to consult the presentation and test their knowledge, RAN has developed an Interactive Game. Instructions are provided in the game. For each question, the participants click on what they believe to be the correct answer, then the game will indicate whether or not the answer is correct. The Answer Key provides additional information, explaining the correct answer.
