Up to this point, I've been able to watch the videos and figure things out if I get stuck.
This particular quiz about conditionals had two questions which really gave me trouble.
The first one dealt with multiple if statements. I kept re-watching that video regarding "conditionals if-else." Turns out that the answer was not logically in that "if" video but was in the following video about switches. I only figured that question out after going to the forums and saw someone else had posted having trouble with the same question.
The other question that I got stuck on had to do with a switch. Turns out the answer was in "further reading" and I never found it in the video. (I'm not even sure that extra reading is available on the iPad app.)
So, what threw me was that the "if" question did not have an answer in the "if" video and the "switch" question did not have an answer in the "switch" video. For what it's worth and maybe I missed something, so please disregard if not helpful.
It's not just you, I have seen a couple instances where the quiz question did reflect content that was coming up and not necessarily mentioned in the previous video. I really can't say if this is working as intended or if the developers just misplaced the questions. There could be some that maybe was just lightly mentioned (it was just said in a few words to hint on content up-coming) and they are basing the question off of that. But I do agree with you that if it wasn't covered in minimal detail, it shouldn't be on the video's quizzes.
What I would do in future instances is to watch all of the videos in a series before answering quizzes and code challenges. You aren't really required to complete them in order to move on, they just set it up that way. If you feel that it is indeed a mistake and think that the developers should look into the matter, send a support email and address the issue as these forums aren't the right area to bring up bugs. I hope I've helped you in some way.
Thanks for taking the time to respond. Aloha, Susan
