That answer is not in the system, hence it would be very odd if you got that as a correct answer. If it happens again, take a screenshot and post it here (after uploading it somewhere like www.imgur.com).

Could be you did not notice a small typo, but this does happen once in a while, so just try it again.

Nothing was underlined in the "correct answer"!! I put the exact thing as the "correct answer" three times! It only worked once I copied and pasted the answer.

If you truly believe your answer was correct, then report it.

Also, check the lesson notes. If there is a known bug with a lesson, it'll be there, as well as the work-around until they fix it.
