Why does changing one input break this code segment?

Pretty sure the quiz= part needs .first() on the end or .all() depending on what you want to do. 
Whatever comes from the form will always be a string, so casting it into an integer is correct. 
It's throwing index out of bounds likely because you have literally nothing for quiz[i].answer in 
your loop, as the quiz= line will always return the SQL statement rather than an actual object 

In the future, put print statements before things you're trying to debug, to make sure that 
you're getting exactly what you're expecting at each stage of the POST. I haven't actually run 
your code, but an index out of bounds error means it's something to do with your loop, and that's 
the most likely place for it to happen.
