Use proper code formatting for quiz submissions

When writing quiz questions that include code snippets, please include proper formatting, like spaces. For example, in C++: while (x-->1){ y++; } is the same as: while (x-- > 1) { y++; } For beginners and anyone who struggles under the pressure of timed questions, the first example can be confusing. I'm sure most people know that --> doesn't exist as a comparator, but it does exist with the "this" part of pointers and references, which can be initially confusing when not properly formatted as shown.

in my opinion... for quiz with beginner participant, it is important to make format properly even for parenthesis, bracket, quotation symbol, and don't forget indentation. :) why... to make easier reading the code for them. cmiiw

I agree that especially for beginners it's important to follow a style guide. It's easier to read the code when it's properly formatted.
