Question re: So as to not fall in the water.
Kwizbot para que no nos caigamos en el agua.You para que no caernos en el agua.
You could also say: para no caernos en el agua.
I was very curious to see that the “que” was dropped in the 2nd answer.
Could you please explain why? And why it is needed in the first sentence and would not be used in my answer.
Thank you so much!

If we use "para que" (in order to, so that...) the presence of "que" will trigger the subjunctive. "...para que no nos caigamos". If we use "para" with no "que", then you need an infinitive: "...para no caernos".
This lesson is about using para que + subjunctive. Have a look here.
This other lesson is a basic lesson on "para + infinitive" (without "que")
