To add a blank slide to your quiz, do any of the following:

- In Slide View, go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click Blank Slide. A new blank slide will be added after the currently selected slide and open in Slide View.
- In Form View, go to the Home tab on the ribbon and click Blank Slide. A new blank slide will be added after the currently selected slide and open in Slide View. (Blank slides don’t have a Form View.)
After adding a blank slide, you can add content, apply animations, and set timings.
