TO: Whoever did this.Would be me.
IF you are going to make esoteric tests then please define them clearly.I tried to, but I am happy to learn...
First:Here is an older one / no longer used of the same concept:
The match the letters is of course OK, but the second and third ones do not make any sense.
Second:
I do not remember exactly, but, "decode the word ..." what "word" and where is it. Then it gives an example where "o" = "2g" and example "c2gm..."
Third:This is the right answer.
Sort alphabetically KCBXXA and select the 1st, 3rd and 5th.
Sorting gives ABCKXX
1,3 and 5 gives ACX -- BUZZZ_WRONG!
How is a newbie to programming and FPC expected to understand this? I have been programming for 40+ years and I failed the test and pretty sure I am not senile yet!Well you got it right.
If you MUST do these tests then publish them here for comment before going live. The wording of and understanding is NOT obvious or CLEAR.If the wording can be improved, well that is all fine. Though sometimes different wordings for the same question are needed.
After logging out, I tested the forum registration. In the attachment, I am posting the "I am human" test and agree: the questions are hard to understand.
This is the right answer.
Unfortunately there is no log, what went wrong. So I do not know why the forum declined this.
All the question come with an example, to clarify them. And make it easier for none native English speakers.
I replaced the "decode the word" by a new set "Pick and add all prime numbers: ...."Does that sound more reasonable?
I am not aware of a setting that controls the amount of attempts.
The Prime things is OK, but again ambiguous. Do you mean
Find all Primes in this list { 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, 13, 18, 19 } now add all the Primes together and enter the total in the box below.
"Pick and add all prime numbers: ...."the ... was a list of primes.
The Prime things is OK, but again ambiguous. Do you meanAnd a non-English speaking, math-hating person might not know what a "prime" is (prime steak?). I think there should be a "joker" option to ask for another question, similar to the first question.

just curiosity...
have bots gotten really good at reading text in an image ?
At least at one time, that seemed to be sufficient to prevent bots from successfully completing the registration process.

The sad fact today is that often what used to be "bots" are now in fact lowly paid humans somewhere in the third world.That is truly sad and, the problem it represents, makes the problem of unwanted registrations very small in comparison.
