  1. it is strange that in utter contrast to all other websites this web ask for the security question itself
    there are many a sites like ebanking ,credit cards etc provide for such questions
    since most of the real life aspects one can very easily recollect the correct answer
    Because of the very fact that such multiplicity of sites do exist and most of the security questions are similar it is absolutely impossible to remember the question itself and if such is the case it will probably take not less than week to get the answer and your usage will become of no use probably.
