What if someone answers my question incorrectly?

Now and then, you may receive an answer to a question that may not be helpful to you, or it otherwise may not fit Brainly's posting guidelines. While users of Brainly are encouraged to answer questions only if they are sure of the answer, and if they are ready to provide a clear and helpful answer, everyone makes mistakes sometimes!

 

Some issues an answer can have include:

  • the explanation has some mistakes, or the answer is totally wrong
  • it's just an answer, or it doesn't have a clear explanation
  • it was posted as a joke 

Please report the answer to our moderators, who will remove it ASAP, so that someone else has the chance to answer your question.

 

To report an answer, click on the Report button on the answer. The button is located on the right-hand side, above the comment box.

A box will then pop up asking you WHY you reported this answer. Please select the most appropriate reason!

Once you've reported the answer successfully, it will be marked as "reported."
