      Description

      During restore, questions have the answers attached to them in a serial manner. However the database is queried for each answer because of the progressive parsing loader.

      Creating a small cache of the answers for a single question allows a reduction in database usage and also does a complete text match rather than the first 255 characters. Which does have the potential to expose the wrong answer to us.

      The memory requirement for a single question should not be large as any quiz page will be required to pay the same cost when displaying the answers to the quiz.
