bash script question

Why are you capitalizing your variable?
$SECONDS seems to be a predefined builtin.
from a shell where $SECONDS has never been exported gives some
interesting results both in bash and zsh. In this case, $SECONDS is
being initialized to 0, and it begins counting the seconds from the time
it was initialized, which is why it actually shows the number of seconds
that the quiz took even though there was no code to count the seconds.
Hope this helps.
