I wish I would have read comments before I got the first answer "wrong" by putting in the correct answer. They need to fix this!

Yes, the 1st question is wrong. It should be 2005 but only accepts 2003 as the correct answer.

I am confussed about the answer to question 1. The article and the explination to the (wrong) answer stated 2005. When I picked 2005, it was incorrect. Is anyone else not understanding the answer?
