In "The Elements of a Green Home Series--Sites", there was a question about which feature does NOT help reduce the heat island effect of a property. The choices were: Open pavers, brick patio, vegetative roof and awnings. The correct answer was brick patio as brick absorbs heat energy then releases this heat; however, the quiz to get the 1 CEU for this course indicates brick patio was incorrect. Please correct this error as my quiz score was reduced by this error.

I am finding this in the quizzes I'm taking too. Glad to hear I'm not the only one.
