      That is what the question said. And the "correct answer was the same thing as my answer.

      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.
