The one that works is 
in the course Chem120-121 Lecture 2003-2 : sfu

It contains many instances of the option response blocks as below:

<part id="11">
<randomlist show="1">
<optionresponse max="1" id="12" randomize="yes">
    <foilgroup options="('Li','Na','K','Rb','Cs')">
<foil location="random" value="$IE1" name="1st IE Group 1">
<startouttext />Which of the listed alkali metals (Li, Na, K, Rb, or Cs') has 
$hilo1 1st ionization energy?
<endouttext />
    <responseparam description="allowed tries" default="3" type="integer" 
name="maxtries" />
spread over 5 parts, however because of PARM issues, I am not actually using 
the  hard-coded maxtries, (see bug 1444 and quiver some more) but they ARE 
set in PARM.

The one that doe NOT work (let me just check my postulate that there is a not 
delay in all metadata getting updated...   Nope, it still does not work)  is:
in the course 20032tests : sfu

it contains simply:

<problem><startouttext />Type Question Here.<endouttext />
<optionresponse max="1" id="11" randomize="yes">
    <foilgroup options="('True','False')">
<foil location="random" value="True" name="Foil1">
<startouttext />This is foil One. It is currently set to "True."<endouttext />
<foil location="random" value="False" name="Foil2">
<startouttext />This is foil Two. It is currently set to "False."<endouttext 

<responseparam description="maximum tries" default="3" type="integer" 
name="maxtries" />

Well I did mention this in that bug, but I agree it is not on topic, it is 
just that one thing led to the other.  Also it was late friday and I was 
tired and sick (still am -- note that this is different from being "sick-and 
tired" which I am not) and so no longer trusted my judgement.
So I decided that creating a new bug at that time would not be productive.

Go wild and then tell me what I missed.  Not doubt it was something obvious. 

You want any roles?  Personally I'm restricting my carbohydrate intake at this
