    There is a comment, "The answer was given automatically." Has anyone else seen this? What kind of exercise was it? Tell us more. I managed to get it only as a listening exercise, and I definitely had to type it all out.

    I have an educated guess. There's a new bug that I've experienced myself, though not on this sentence yet. On tile exercises where the sentence is long and the tiles get pushed off the bottom of the screen, Duo fills in the tiles that have gone off the bottom of the screen. In a really long sentence it can actually fill in all the tiles. I've seen both partially filled sentences and twice I've encountered fully completed tile exercises where all I had to do was click submit. This sentence is long enough that it could well be that bug.

    Of course there is nothing any contributor can do about it, so such a report is wasted. The correct procedure would be to take a screen shot and file a bug report.
