What I have tried:

C# Code
exam = (Examination)Session["questions"];
Examination exam = (Examination)Session["Question"];
DataList1.DataSource = exam.questions;
DataList1.DataSource = exam.questions;
DataList1.DataBind();
aspx page


<asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server" Width="100%">
<HeaderTemplate>
Show Result

Review Questions




</HeaderTemplate>

<itemtemplate>
<%# DataBinder.Eval( Container.DataItem,"QuestionText")%>

1.<%# DataBinder.Eval( Container.DataItem,"Answer1") %>

2.<%# DataBinder.Eval( Container.DataItem,"Answer2") %>

3.<%# DataBinder.Eval( Container.DataItem,"Answer3") %>

4.<%# DataBinder.Eval( Container.DataItem,"Answer4") %>



<itemtemplate>
Correct Answer :

<asp:Repeater ID="Repeater1" runat="server" >

<itemtemplate>
<%# DataBinder.Eval( Container.DataItem,"cans") %>







<separatortemplate>




<footertemplate>

So what is the error you are getting - provide it details.

Secondly please format your question properly because your code snippet is rendering as HTML.

error is question is not visible only correctanswer label is displaying.
Why are you binding two lists to one DataList?
