Yes, that's what's going to happen, unless of course, the earlier  
problems are also generating more than one bubble-line.

On the other hand: why do you need to know? LON-CAPA takes care of  
the bubble-line-to-problem association. For example, if you have an  
optionresponse problem and use it on an exam, it generates a bubble- 
line for every foil:

What happens to the efficiency of a Carnot engine?
13. () higher  () same  () lower "You increase TH"
14. () higher  () same  () lower "You decrease TH"
15. () higher  () same  () lower "You increase TL"

- but LON-CAPA sorts that out just fine.
