I was reviewing through the “first posts” on an iPad when I come up across a question about conjugates. Because it was an audit, it did not show any comments... etc. I decided to first comment on it, explaining what a conjugate is and asking for clarification on why the poster said that 5$\pm\sqrt{2}$ was not a conjugate and then answer the question after upvoting. After finishing my comment, I click return, and then boom it said I failed the audit.

What exactly happenned? Why did I fail?

    $\begingroup$ Apparently you should have chosen "No Action needed". Why the system objects to comments in such review audits is beyond me. $\endgroup$ Oct 26, 2019 at 22:22
