Your answer was wrong!

Of course, every 1H atom in a compound will contribute a resonance signal. But consider the following example:
1,1-Dibromomethene contains two protons. It shows, however, only one resonance line!
formula of 1,1-dibromomethene
The reason for this will become quite obvious if you have another look at the second item on page 8.
Fill in the blanks in the following text:
The two protons have the electronic enironment, that is, their spatial relationships to the other atoms in the molecule are , and the character of the neighboring chemical bonds is for both protons. Therefore they have the chemical shifts, and their signals appear at positions in the spectrum.

Now go back to step 8 and reconsider your answer!
