C# MVC - Help with simple Dynamic Form


I am struggling to resolve this, I am creating a basic questionnaire, with questions and radio button answers on my View.

Its dynamic in the sense that, the questions and radio buttons are database driven, so amending that affects the number of questions on the page.

The trouble is, when I submit the form, the method I hit (my HTTPPOST action] doesn't receive the data from the form.

Here is my view:

@model IEnumerable<HandHygiene.ViewModel.QuestionViewModel>

    ViewData["Title"] = "Home Page";


<form asp-action="Create" method="post">
    @foreach (var item in Model)
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.QuestionName)
                @foreach (var obj in item.QuestionOptions)
                    <input type="radio" name="@item.QuestionID" value="@obj" /> @Html.Label(obj)



    <div class="form-group">
        <input type="submit" value="Submit" class="btn btn-default" />


Here is my HttpPost action method that is hit upon submit:

        public IActionResult Create(IEnumerable<AnswerViewModel> answerViewModel)

            return null;

Here is the AnswerViewModel

    public class AnswerViewModel

        public int SelectedAnswer { get; set; }
        public int QuestionID { get; set; }

Any ideas would be appreciated,
