anything is better than captcha, I like your idea of simple questions,

actually any answer would probably be acceptable since a bot would not
recognize a question.  it could be as simple as asking someone to type
a particular key.

. type "5" to continue (number/letter, being random) would probably be
fine.

The use of audio captcha's is something I don't want to recommend, since the organizations works in the area of  hearing impairment and also due to the problems with sound quality, etc.
