Yes, I understand it is not necessary. However, without it, if someone is only using the word bank, (rather than typing), they may not be able to arrive at the ʻcorrectʻ answer. Since going through this lesson the first time, I have turned off the word bank option, so do not know if it impacts the correctness of the answer any more. Thanks for responding. :)
