There is not built-in method with LON-CAPA where you can specify a range 
for your wrong answers.  See 
http://bugs.loncapa.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2702.  You can however hard-code 
what answers appear for your wrong answers.  Then you can specify the 
array of wrong answers in the incorrect answer location.  There is also 
a parameter for number of bubbles.  Make sure that the you specify at 
least number-of-bubbles - 1 wrong answers.  The default is 8  bubbles in 
exam mode.
