Quiz question opens wikipedia page

In my new quizzes, students clicking on a word automatically opens the wikipedia page for that word. Using Lockdown Browser does not prevent this, but then they get stuck on that page and have to close the browser window and reenter the quiz. But why is this happening? I can't find any links embedded in the questions, which I wrote myself and created item banks for.

Hello @KaraCoe 

Thank you for contacting the Instructure Community. We're sorry to hear you've been experiencing issues with students being redirected to wikipedia  during a quiz. It sounds like there  is a hyperlink within the quiz question even if you cannot see it. Lockdown will  cause issues  if a student leaves the quiz when they are not allowed to have other browsers or tabs open. You could try deleting the quiz question that is causing an issue and re-creating it from scratch. Any hidden links or HTML would not be there and should technically resolve the issue. If that doesn't work for some reason, you should speak with Canvas Support who can take an actual look at the question and pinpoint the issue.
