I ran your program and it seems that Roger has answered your if/else statement question, if that's what you meant.

Your other problem is a typo which could have been averted using the Vars() method provided by CGI.pm - here's how you'd do that:
my $q = CGI->new; my $form_variables = $q->Vars; print $form_variables->{FirstQuestion}; # etc...
I'd have a read through the CGI.pm manpage if I were you.

As a rule, if you find yourself copy-and-pasting lumps of code inline you can be certain that you are doing something wrong. In this example, your program would be improved by generalising the repeated print statements into a subroutine that took as its arguments a question/answer pair.

As a general observation, the HTML you are outputting isn't up to much either. Consider closing tags on all those forms at least.
