### Problems that work in Homework but NOT in a Quiz ### Problems that work in Homework but NOT in a Quiz

I am just using gateway quizzes for the first time this semester, and I am discovering that some problems that worked fine in homework sets are NOT working at all in quizzes.

When a student completes it and then submits the test/quiz, this problem is marked incorrect and shown as if they never attempted it even if they chose the correct answer.

See the problem below for an example.

Can anyone help me figure out what is going wrong on this problem?

Thanks!
