Yeah, question #1 contradicts itself. It must be a typo since water based dries faster and it explains that...then says oil based dries faster!

Question 1: Which dries faster? Your answer: Water-based paint Correct answer: Oil-based paint Oil-based paint takes a lot longer to dry than its water-based counterpart. However, the longer dry time helps give it a super smooth finish. I know this is not a competition here but really? Oil based paint takes a lot longer to dry so the answer to what dries faster is oil based paint?
