I'm not familiar with WP8 programming as such but, based on my knowledge of WPF, I'd guess that your getSelectedAnswer method should be coded as follows:

string getSelectedAnswer()
   if (radA.IsChecked) // IsChecked rather than Checked
      return radA.Content.ToString(); // Content rather than Text
   if (radB.IsChecked)
      return radB.Content.ToString();
   if (radC.IsChecked)
      return radC.Content.ToString();
   if (radD.IsChecked)
      return radD.Content.ToString();
   return '';
