INSTRUCTIONS: The question/title is just text changed to an H1 (Header 1). Then add a bullet to create the "drop down" panel that will stay hidden until the user clicks on the question/title. You can add more than one bullet after an H1 or use "Shift + Enter" to line-break (<br>), the choice is now yours. The only way you can break this accordion is to use another header (instead of H1) or add anything other than a bullet directly after.
