// Creating and adding answers.
Dictionary<String, String> answers = new Dictionary<String, String> () {
    {"mykey1", "myanswer1"},
    {"mykey2", "myanswer2"}

// Adding on the fly.
answers.Add ("mykey3", "myanswer3");

// Retrieving answers.
String trykey = "mykey2";
String answer;
Boolean retrieved = answers.TryGetValue (trykey, out answer);
if (retrieved) {
    Console.WriteLine (
        String.Format ("Retrieved: {0}", answer));
} else {
    Console.WriteLine (
        String.Format ("Invalid key! Can't find an answer for: {0}", trykey));

I have no idea what your keys are supposed to be, so I chose String.
