What I think I'm trying to do is; Dynamically determine the 'cout' stuff based on user selection/input rather than writing out every line of cout. I'm thinking like that, because I thought that I need this approach when I later create the actual questions and answers portion, hopefully with possible answers (multiple-choice) being in random order for each question, as well as questions being displayed randomly. Getting the correct series of questions from the input/selections made.
Anyways, so basically if I understand correctly, I should scale-back more straightforward cout what's needed approach? Or am I just doing something fundamentally wrong?
PS: yeah... the error stuff I still need to clean up. It's difficult for me to stray from my minimal html coding approaches (i guess that's how i'd have to call it).
