Hi Dermot, 

Unfortunately, we can't, needle and haystack spring to mind.

If this happens again can you use the Report it button on your correction board which links directly to the quiz you refer to and makes it possible to correct these types of errors?

Hi Mark,

I have found this question and I see what you mean but there's a huge difference between an exclamation mark making it a compliment

What nice boys!

and the question mark

What nice boys?

which could be seen as an ironic response I suppose or just querying which nice boys you were talking about.

So in the end, it was not a duplicate entry.

 

Of course, in speech, the tone would help out ...

Hi Dermot,

Was this in a quiz ?

Yes - but I do not know which one. Hopefully you can search for it.
