      Setting this up is a bit tricky. Sorry.

      1. Create a quiz in a course, and add some questions to it.

      2. Go into the database, and edit mdl_quiz.questions field for that quiz. That is a comma-separated list of question ids. Change one of those ids to a non-existant value.

      3. Make the same change of question id in the corresponding row of the quiz_question_instances table.

      4. Now go to the quiz edit screen. The broken questions will be displayed soemthing like "This quiz contains a question that seems to have been deleted". Make sure you can remove that from the quiz using the 'x' icon.

      Description

      Sometimes, due to a bug (e.g. in restore) you get a quiz referring to a question that does not exist. Following past bug fixes, this is displayed quite nicely.

      However, since MDL-32240, you get an error if you try to remove such a bogus question from the quiz (which is, after all, the only sensible thing to do to it.)
