You can post your idea of increasing intent number at alexa uservoice: (link).

Even though I think the problem is that you didn't understand what is intent and how it used. You could get around having just an AnswerIntent. This intents should then have slot with all correct and wrong answers. A sample utterance for this intent could be:

'{answersSlot}'

'I think it is {answersSlot}'

etc.

In the code you would only need to handle this intent and see what value does it bring. If it one of the values from the wrong answers to your question - the answer was wrong. If it is a correct value, the answer was correct.

You definitely don't need intents for every question.
