There is a question where the answer explained is HYPOgonadotropic hypogonadism and it clearly states that the answer is NOT HYPERgonadotropic hypogonadism. However, it only accepts the "wrong answer" when choosing! -Please look into this glitch. There is only one question involving this subject.

Way to much repetition in reading, perhaps you could highlight if anything new was added (usually the last sentence would apply.
