Hi Hon-Kie,

Put the 8 problems in a sequence (8prob.sequence).  Make a new sequence 
that contains just the 8-problem sequence (new.sequence).  Use the 
advanced editor to edit new.sequence and set the parameter of the 
8prob.sequence resource to randomly pick 2.

I think it would be nice if you could just put the 8 problems into a 
folder on DOCS and then just say randomly pick 2.  This is very similar 
to Ray's #2319 bug. I encourage you to comment on Ray's bug or create a 
new bug report if you want something different, such as DOCS functionality.
