I know a lot of people have brought up the fact that seguir + present participle and continuar + present participle have the same meaning, so they selected one answer which was marked as incorrect. I realize that the question specified that multiple answers could be correct but the fact that so many people were confused by this makes me think it wasn’t very clear. Maybe you should instead say “Select all of the correct answers” instead. Anyway, I do have an actual question - is there any subtle difference between the two, or any situations in which you would use one over the other? Does it vary by country or region? Just curious. Muchísimas gracias, y que tenga un buen fin de semana!
I would say using seguir or continuar are more or less on the same level of usage, not depending on the region at all, however, "continuar" is a bit more formal than "seguir". You can use either one verb or the other in any sort of context though.
As for the not very clear instructions on multiple answer questions, we'll take it to the team and see if that could be improved so there is more clarity.
Muchas gracias y saludos
