Watson doesn't have speech recognition, so it doesn't know other
contestants' answers, although it does learn the right answer for each
question afterwards.  Anyway, it would be difficult for it to figure
out that "the twenties" and "the nineteen twenties" were the same
answer; very often an answer is wrong because it is incomplete, e.g.,
Watson's "leg" when "missing a leg" was the right answer.    (02)
