First, let's cleanup the table design.  Specifications 3 and 4 are conflicting.  

Specification 3 implies: an answer belongs to a single question
Specification 4 implies: an answer may belong to many questions

In other words,  you have two ways to find the answers to a question.  One is to join tblAnswer to tblQuestion.  The other is to join tblQuestionAnswer to tblQuestion.  

So...it's not clear to me why you have tblQuestionAnswers in your design. In fact, if you ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS have exactly 4 Answers to EVERY question, it is not clear to me why you have tblAnswers in your design.  (Although, the two absolutes in that assertion do cast come reservations).

Really, I'd suggest this design:

tblContest
  ContestID   (PK)

tblQuestion
   QuestionID (PK)

tblContestQuestion   (allows same question to be used in multiple contests)
   ConstestID (PK, FK)
   QuestionID (PK, FK)

tblAnswer
   QuestionID (PK,FK)  
   AnswerID  (PK)

Didn't quite finish.

I'd also have:

tblCorrectAnswer
   QuestionID (PK,FK)
   AnswerID (FK)

Like always, there are many ways.  But I would create a stored procedure to perform the insert and then invoke it from an ado command object, passing the questionID, UserI, and AnswerID as parameters.  You can find many examples on the web for how to call a stored procedure from VB or C# code behind an asp form.

OK, here's some sample code to get you started
CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[InsertUserAnswer]

      @UserId integer,

      @QuestionId integer,

      @AnswerId integer, 

      @ContestId integer 

AS 

BEGIN 

      SET NOCOUNT ON; 

      INSERT INTO  tblUserAnswer (UserId, QuestionId, AnswerId, ContestId) 

      VALUES (@UserId, @QuestionId, @AnswerId, @ContestId) 

END 
 
 

---------------------
 

Dim strConnString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("conString").ConnectionString 

Dim con As New SqlConnection(strConnString) 

Dim cmd As New SqlCommand() 

cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure 

cmd.CommandText = "InsertUserAnswer"

cmd.Parameters.Add("@UserID,SqllDbType.Integer).Value = ????cmd.Parameters.Add("@QuestionID,SqllDbType.Integer).Value = ????

cmd.Parameters.Add("@AnswerID,SqllDbType.Integer).Value = ????

cmd.Parameters.Add("@ContestID,SqllDbType.Integer).Value = ????
 

cmdcmd.Connection = con 

Try 

      con.Open() 

      cmd.ExecuteNonQuery() 
 

Catch ex As Exception 

      Throw ex 

Finally 

      con.Close() 

      con.Dispose() 

End Try
