Module 3 Quiz

Q1 You are playing in a contract where diamonds are trumps and you have run out of clubs. One of you opponents leads A♣. Which statement is true?

A Play a trump - you cannot follow suit, so you are allowed to ruff
B Play a card you don’t want from another suit (discard)
C Play a spade, because at least it’s the same colour as the card that’s been led
 
Q3 You are a defender in a contract where spades are trumps. You have run out of diamonds after two rounds of diamonds have been played. Declarer now leads another diamond and your partner plays a higher diamond. Declarer calls for a small trump from dummy. Should you...

Q5 You are Declarer, playing in a trump contract. Which statement best describes how you should think about whether to start playing trumps?

B Always hang on to your trumps for as long as you can - they will be useful for trumping the defenders’ winners
