I keep clicking an answer for the state beverage on the quiz and it keeps saying I need to pick an answer, but I am for NC State symbol quiz



Thanks for letting us know about this issue. 

I took the test just now to see what was happening and I do see what you mean. You may need to click twice and also the button changes color when it is chosen. Hopefully that helps and if you continue to have problems, please let us know. 

Thank you, 

Erin Bradford, Government and Heritage Library

Hello! Thank you for visiting this page and taking time to share your feedback. If you complete the quiz, you'll get an answer page with lots of facts and pictures for each question. But we'll see what we can do to add an image to the quiz questions.

Thank you!
