Java Android Studio Open Answer Quiz Execution error



I used this Youtube Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkUfACbi6BE to create an Open Answer quiz in Android Studio using Java. I followed the tutorial exactly, but when I ran the code on a device, even if I answer questions incorrectly, it says I won the game. I am not sure why it isn’t validating answers correctly. Any tips on how to fix this would be great! The code for the app is below, since the video does not provide source code, thought it would be useful.

Database Class:

package com.tests.shortanswerquiz;

public class Database {

    public static String[] questions = {
            "Which is the first planet in the Solar system?",
            "Which is the second planet in the Solar system?",
            "Which is the third planet in the Solar system?",
            "Which is the fourth planet in the Solar system?",
            "Which is the fifth planet in the Solar system?",
            "Which is the sixth planet in the Solar system?",
            "Which is the seventh planet in the Solar system?",
            "Which is the eighth planet in the Solar system?",
            "Which is a dwarf planet in the Solar system?",

    };
    public static String[] answers = {
            "mercury",
            "venus",
            "earth",
            "mars",
            "jupiter",
            "saturn",
            "uranus",
            "neptune",
            "pluto",

    };

}

Item Class:

package com.tests.shortanswerquiz;

public class Item {

    private String question, answer;

    public Item(String question, String answer) {
        this.question = question;
        this.answer = answer;


    }

    public String getQuestion() {
        return question;
    }

    public String getAnswer() {
        return answer;
    }


}

        Collections.shuffle(questions);

                } else {

                }

            }

            @Override

            }

        b_continue.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                if(curQuestion < (Database.questions.length - 1)) {
                    curQuestion++;
                    tv_question.setText(questions.get(curQuestion).getQuestion());
                    b_continue.setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE);
                    et_answer.setText("");
                } else {
                    Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "You won the game!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                    finish();
                }

            }
        });

    }
}

Answer

The reason your code is failing is due to this piece of code.

 @Override
            public void onTextChanged(CharSequence s, int start, int before, int count) {
                if(et_answer.getText().toString().equalsIgnoreCase(questions.get(curQuestion).getAnswer())) {
                    b_continue.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
                } else {
                    b_continue.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);//set this to View.INVISIBLE instead
                }

            }

The way the code is written is such that you cannot move to the next part of the code until you give the correct answer . When you set it to View.VISIBLE it lets you go to the next question without answering it correctly.
