This is the code that gets generated from the Contact 7 form.

<span class="wpcf7-form-control-wrap quiz-947">
<span class="wpcf7-quiz-label">1+1=?</span>
&nbsp;
<input type="text" maxlength="5" size="5" class="wpcf7-quiz" name="quiz-947">
<input type="hidden" value="b52bd00e06a35a2aa8f86dbd292be819" name="_wpcf7_quiz_answer_quiz-947">
</span>

<div class="wpcf7-form-control-wrap quiz-947"><div class="wpcf7-quiz-label">1+1=?</div>&nbsp;<input type="text" name="quiz-947" class="wpcf7-quiz" size="5" maxlength="5" style="margin-left: -3px;"><input type="hidden" name="_wpcf7_quiz_answer_quiz-947" value="b52bd00e06a35a2aa8f86dbd292be819"></div>

add this style to your style sheet:

input.wpcf7-quiz { width:100px;}

and adjust accordingly.

I do not see it in any of your stylesheets; please point me in the right direction. This should be quite obvious, the solution I gave is correct.

Try adding it to this stylesheet:

Ok, I see you have done it now. One more thing (due to a bug in Firebug, ha).

Make it
input.wpcf7-quiz { width:100px !important;}

OK I changed it to:
input.wpcf7-quiz { width:100px !important;}


For me to add it to the other File I would need to get FTP access. do you still want me to add it to Default?

I'm sorry, this is really weird. In Firebug that change works but on the live site it does not. A simple margin-left should fix it. Adjust numbers to your needs.

input.wpcf7-quiz { width:100px !important; margin-left:10px;}
