I'd have done better had I not rushed through it.  Good thing to remember when I take the CPA exam!  Also - octave? Do the sharps and flats not count?

It is not a secret.  I type in the answer right after the question. Then use the color option to color the answer the same color as the background, in this case, white. When you drag the cursor over it, it selects it and highlights it in a contrasting color, and you can read the answer.  Clever, no?  Chuck.
