Can you make it show you had to answer in the yellow box? Currently, it is just naming particles

which is extremely difficult as is ! But even though I only had 4, I agree this one is a good canddate for yellow boxes. This will be a very tough quiz for most people, but if you DO know about it, it is nice to actually answer according to the descripton and not name the particles you know. (I was allways proud I knew the word quark ( and not mean the yoghurt stuff) and even upquark, there goes the last bit of my ego... haha)
