I saw a comment from a regular who said she hesitated because she wasn't sure of the answer. I try my answer all the time and often have to go back. Other than time, is there a penalty for this?

Just finished a gram with a very low success rate. I didn't find it all that difficult. Some folks commented on the low rate. I can't imagine that the dedicated solvers had much impact on the rate...
