I assume this is a website, quiz websites seem to be a common homework task. So, you probably want to get your questions from a common source, which builds a random list and stores it for use by everyone. This could be your db, or the application object, or simply an algorithm that appears random, but always gives the same result ( for example built on a random number generator, seeded by the current time to the nearest hour, or todays date, or whatever, depending on how often you want them to change ).
