When you call innerHTML, you're setting the html for that element. This means that your inner html will only be equal to the last thing to set it to. Basically, you're overwriting your html repeatedly with new information, instead of adding information.

// Change all of these print statements to add to the message variable.
// Then print the message variable.

print("<h2>You Hit " + rightHits + " Questions:</h2>");

print("<h2>And Missed " + wrongHits + " Questions:</h2>");
// Something like this...

var message = "<h2>You Hit " + rightHits + " Questions:</h2>";
message += generateAnswersList(rightQuestions);

message += "<h2>And Missed " + wrongHits + " Questions:</h2>";
message += generateAnswersList(wrongQuestions);
