If your problem boils down to permuting a list of strings then I suggest that you take a look at java.util.Collections. There is a shuffle method that does just that. You will also find java.util.Arrays useful to get yourself a List to shuffle.

Random will be random, sometimes the same question will appear more than once. You may need to "delete" those questions after they are "used" to prevent them from reappearing, or flag them as "used".
