A couple of tips to help isolate issues between HTML and CGI script:
  1. Print the passed in parameters to the console, and/or
  2. Supply the values in the CGI and check the script output (shown below)
. . . my ($grp1,$grp2,$grp3) = qw{ Correct1 Incorrect2 Correct3}; # explicit + values # $grp1 = param('grp1'); # passed in values # $grp2 = param('grp2'); # $grp3 = param('grp3'); if ($grp1 eq "Correct1" ) { print p("Question One Is $grp1"); } elsif ($grp1 eq"Incorrect1") { print p(" Question One is $grp1"); } if ($grp2 eq "Correct2") { print p("Question One Is $grp2"); } elsif ($grp2 eq"Incorrect2") { print p(" Question One is $grp2"); } if ($grp3 eq "Correct3") { print p("Q3 is $grp3" ) ; } elsif ($grp3 eq "Incorrect3") { print p("q3 is $grp3"); } __output__ Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1 <p>Question One Is Correct1</p><p> Question One is Incorrect2</p><p>Q3 + is Correct3</p>
So, it would appear the script is correct, and that the problem may lie in the HTML.

I know these are basic tips, but basic things can get easily overlooked.
