The rule that standalone adjectives after c'est must be in the masculine

Thinking that I understood the rule,I stupidly wrote "Oui c'est bon,"  and of course got it wrong. My natural inclination was to put "oui, c'est bonne." But, I veered because of the rule. Obviously, I do not understand the rule. Would you please explain it more clearly? :o)

Bonjour Wanda, you understood the rule: adjectives are *always* invariable after c'est. The problem is that you misread your answer results, please take another look at them: the green check is next to the correct answer, while the red x is next to your incorrect answer.
