Question True Or False = In order to add a contact form to your WordPress site you will have to use a plugin.
This is false but you have the correct answer as true. You don't need a plugin to have a contact form on a word press site. I understand this course is for beginners but its misleading and may make people think contact forms always have to be done by a plugin.

You don't "have" to use a plugin, you could code a form into the site/page you wanted with HTML (Front-end) or PHP in template files. The plugin sure make it easier though. Ninja Forms, Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms etc all have a lot of predefined setups, fields and security that just makes coding your own a little redundant.
