Good questions Paul.

Some questions can have more than one correct answer.

Think about it.

That would have been good to know in the OP! :wink:

Paul, that is difficult. Do you mean all the questions have more than one answer or could have different answers?:slight_smile:

Do I have to answer them for y’all & give the books to Jimmy Swaggart? :wink:
Or perhaps Billy Idol… :mrgreen:

I have noted their answers, and if there is more than one applicable answer, they all should be allowed to edit and add the second answer to the ones they have now.
a, b
b, c
d, a
b, d
If that is what Paul meant

I agree. One or some of the questions can have more than one right answer. If that threw you off come on back as Marcel said.
But, you can only add an answer, not change answers.

OK, question one can have 2 or more answers.
My bad. Just trying to make it more challenging.

My Original quoted above…
