For Your issue

For template items in gridview, once you did databind then you should assign the values through loop.
gvEmp.DataSource = dtEmployee;
for (int i = 0; i < dtEmployee.Rows.Count; i++)
 for (int j = 1; j < dtEmployee.Columns.Count; j++)
  if (j == 1 || j == 2 || j == 3)
   ((TextBox)(gvEmp.Rows[i].Cells[j].Controls[1])).Text = dtEmployee.Rows[i][j].ToString();
so change the code based on your need

The most logical way to do this, is to modify your data source to contain the new data, and then rebind.

You should edit your post, not post fake 'answers'.

Where-ever your data comes from, you need to update it to include the rows you want, then bind the data with the new rows. I don't understand how this code is related to your question.

If the answers do not come from your db, why are you binding them to a grid ? In that case, you should create a collection of questions with answers, build it in memory, and bind to that.
