That said, a sentence in the intro blurb explaining/warning about the
alternation would certainly have increased the usability score. No
argument there. As it was, when I came across the switch at the second
question, it brought me up short momentarily, while I accessed the
situation to figure out why it didn't quite make sense. About a second
later, I had glanced back up at the previous question, noted the reversed
order, and immediately intuited the reason behind it. After that I was
fine, but a sentence mentioning "In the interest of fairness, I've
alternated the answers on each question" in the intro would have avoided
that abrupt < Stop! Evaluate the disturbance. Note the required
adjustment. Continue. > sequence.
