Have you tried using just
instead of _root["answer1"+(level-1)].removeMovieClip(); ?
Beyond that, was answer1 created dynamically such that you can use the removeMovieClip method on it?
No the clip starts with the frame on the stage.
I tried changing it to this.removeMovieClip(); and it still does not leave when clicked.
If I try to create the clip dynamically then how can I attach action script to something does does not exist in the start of the scene.
If you look up the removeMovieClip method you will see that it applies only for objects that are added using dynamic methods.
You should get away from attaching code to objects - it's a bad practice. Put your code in the timeline where it is easier to find and manage and then you can assign it dynamically.
I thank you very much, is there a tutorial on how to do that?
None that I know of, but if you search Google using terms like "AS2 onPress tutorial" and do similar searches using "onRelease", "onMouseDown", "onMouseOver", etc... it should give you a starting base with example code.
Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it.
