You can use the SetTimer from the Win32 API:

unsigned nIDTimer = ::SetTimer( NULL, 0, 100/*millisec*/, &CMyApp::ProcTimer);
if (!m_nIDTimer)
    return false;

Write a static method which is called when the timer ellapses.

Header file:
static void CALLBACK EXPORT TimerProc( HWND hwnd, UINT uMsg, UINT idEvent, DWORD dwTime );

Cpp file:
void CMyApp::TimerProc( HWND hwnd, UINT uMsg, UINT idEvent, DWORD dwTime )
{
   // do something

1. Use waitable timer objects instead of timers.
2. Assign an appropriate amount of points to your questions (50=easy, etc...)

Sorry, I cannot assign the the point right now ! But, I also don't have 50 point at this moment !

Anyway, do you think Sleep is a good ? By the way, which API is response for your point 1 ?

No but it will do in a pinch.
