Thank you for pointing out that error, Eugene. It has now been corrected on the database and the next refresh will hopefully reflect the change.

It's still not fixed. It said that I got the wrong answers for 1 and 10 when I chose the correct answers and test number 273 from the elementary level doesn't load at all.

Thanks a lot for pointing this. We've fixed the errors but haven't updated the database yet. We will do that soon.
