Learn how to add a drag and drop question.

The reader is requested to drag certain words or phrases into their correct boxes (i.e. categories). All the words or phrases should be in their correct respective boxes in order for the answer to be marked as correct. If only one item is placed incorrectly, the entire answer is marked incorrect. Drag and drop questions are available for paid authors only.
