When writing effective test questions, it's important to focus on writing an objective test. Ideally, add at least one test question for each Learning Object and ensure that question addresses the learning objective.
If you are making a bank of test questions for randomizing, ensure the questions are fairly and evenly balanced. One easy way to do this is to copy a question and then simply change the order of the choices in the duplicate. Or, you can alter the wording of the duplicate question slightly (for example, a true or false question could be duplicated and then re-worded for the opposite choice).
