Multiple POSSIBLE Correct answers

I found this article about a similar problem I'm experiencing, however the fix didn't work for me.  

https://community.articulate.com/discussions/articulate-storyline/multiple-correct-answers-for-hotspot-question 

What I would like to do is give the user an option of selecting one of two possible correct answers.  I've tried the "hotspot" and "pick many" free form quiz options, but I can't seem to be able to give them an option.  

I've attached my project, in which I've tried it different ways.  In the "Form View" I checked-marked the CORRECT hotspots as the right answers, but it's still not recognizing it as correct.

Can someone possibly help me figure this out?

After 4 hours, I finally figured it out!  

From what I can tell, Storyline does not have a quizzing option to pick an "either/or" correct answer.  So in an example like mine, where I want them to click on a graphic (with multiple options for correct answers) I have 2 different tactics, depending on where these "correct" answers were located. 

I put one giant hot spot over the whole slide and made that the Correct answer.

I added multiple hotpots on top of the 1st "Correct" hotspot in the areas that would be considered INCORRECT.  Because they were on top of the pile, they overtook the command of the giant "Correct" hotstpot.

Then instead of having a Submit button, I copied the "submit interaction" trigger to each hotspot.  I did this because you would click on the answer, but it wouldn't show that you've selected anything.

On another version of the slide, where I didn't want to create so many hotspots, I created a transparent shape which, when hovered over, would show a blank layer.  This meant that the correct answer(s) were in one hotspot, but interrupted by a hover spot.

My end result is attached.

Erin,

Im pretty sure I followed your instructions to recreate this interaction. However, when I preview my slide and select the wrong answer more than once and then choose the correct answer, the correct answer is not recognized as correct. Did you have this issue at any point and what was your solution?
