OK, here's my issue, I'm sure one of you can put it into perspective.
For a living, I host trivia gameshows weekly at bars, venues, etc. Tonight I had to ask a poker question and some of the contestants were NOT happy with the answer (I don't write the questions, I receive them from my company via email). It was a poker question.
Here it is, verbatim:
What type of poker games have a mix of community and hole cards?
The answer, according to my company, is "Stud Poker"
Everybody in the bar guessed Texas Hold 'Em. And protested until I gave them all the points. So where did my company, or the contestants, go wrong? Who was right?
I assumed that Texas Hold 'Em was a type of Stud Poker, given the wording of the question, but I know next to nothing about poker soooo here I am. Somebody who knows their stuff, tell me what's up PLEASE!

Need poker question answered by poker expert!

I'm not claiming to be an expert but here goes: Stud poker has no community cards, some of your cards are dealt up for all to see but they are not shared. Hold'Em does use community cards, called the board, these are cards dealt face up near the middle of the table that all players share. Your company has the wrong answer!
