My quiz is only showing 19 questions but I entered 20. Where did the last question go?

I've entered 20 questions to be answered by the students for quiz 1 in canvas. Only 19 questions are showing up on the quiz and the point value in the grade book is 19. Why? Where did my 20 question go, I entered the same as the other 19? The same thing has happened on all 5 of my quizzes; each quiz has 20 questions and one has been deleted by canvas.  Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Are you positive that the question was deleted as opposed to it not being saved in the first place?

A common problem is that people click "Save" on that last question before they click "Update." This is a known issue that was resolved with New Quizzes, but Canvas is no longer developing Classic Quizzes and has a timeline for deprecating them. Canvas Quiz: Updating vs. Saving 

The way to fix it is to go through and re-add that last question, making sure you click update for the question before you save the quiz.

If we're lucky, no students have taken the quiz yet.
