If the question has a yes-no or true-false answer and is missed the next question will be asked. If any other type question is asked and the team member presses the button before the question is finished the member may answer it; however, if the answer is incorrect, the entire question will be read for the other team. The other team will then have ten seconds to answer the question. No conferring among team members is allowed at any time during the competition
