Conditions and the person's weight can greatly change the amount of calories burned - I think this quiz is a lil' bit flawed.

I always find the "hiking" one to be a bit of a trick question. The amount you burn can really fluctuate depending on the incline, terrain and speed at which you're hiking. I hiked a little over 11 miles on a trail that was mostly flat gravel/pebble (only about 2 miles were dirt trail with incline/decline). In this particular case, I only hiked about half of it at a consistent speed and had to move slowly in the last half due to injury, but had that not been the case, would I have burned more calories on this hike, or on previous 6-8 mile hikes on much steeper trails? Surely if the steeper hikes were the same distance, I would have burned more calories overall?
