And the Copy Button to copy the question within the quiz.
To add a question between two questions, hover your cursor between the two questions and click Add Question.
You can also add explanations to questions. Explanations will show to students after they submit their answers during the quiz, if you turn on Show Quiz Feedback in the Quiz Settings when you Start the Quiz.
In multiple choice questions, you can add a variety of answers for students to choose from. You must have at least 2 answers.
To select the correct question responses, click or tap the circle beside the corresponding letter response. A green check mark will appear beside the correct response choice. If you have 2 or more answers selected as correct, students will need to select all the correct answers to get the question correct.

To get the question marked correct, students must enter their answers exactly as you set them (spelling matters).
