Have students make a list/draft of questions from the chapter from the main character's POV. I recommend starting with a smaller amount of questions until the students get used to the format. The questions must have 4 multiple choice answers with only ONE being correct. No "yes or no" questions!

Side Note: This activity involves the Quizizz program. It is a must that you experiment with this tool and let the students take some quizzes so they and you are familiar with the program. There are multitudes of premade quizzes on the site.
