Text Answer questions allow you to enter multiple correct answers so you may add multiple variations on the correct answer in case your participants enter a misspelled response, a variation/rephrasing of the correct answer, etc.
For example, if your trivia question asks, "Where does the President of the United States of America live?" The answer could technically be many phrases such as:
- The White House
- White House
- 1600 Pennsylvania Ave
- 1600 Penn Ave
Crowdpurr allows you to enter up to 10 correct-answer variations in order to try to capture as many correct responses as possible from your participants.

Since Text Answer and Numerical Answer questions allow you to have multiple correct answers, this can help with the aforementioned responses that don't exactly match a single correct answer value by adding in multiple variations of the correct answer to match more common responses.
