GrammarTrainer demo debugged

An exception within an exception within an exception was causing problems with certain exercises involving optional articles when certain text inputting options are chosen. Fascinating stuff, I realize. (It reminds me of learning the endings for Russian numerals between 10 and 20 when they modify animate nouns in the prepositional case).


Now it's working:  here (it still takes a few moments to load)

I had to dig pretty deep to locate the cause; it took under 20 seconds to type the single line of code necessary to fix it. 

Here's where it's useful to be "perseverative," "detail-focused," and "insistent on sameness" (or, at least, on consistency)--all symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome. Or at least of extreme "left-brainedness."
