I don't use structured, but the answer should be approximately the same.
:-) 

If the choices (A, B, C, D) are autonumbered (with the question pgf set
to restart their numbering), then all you need to do for the answer is
create a cross-reference to the right choice using the <$paranum>
building block. That way, if you rearrange the choices so that what was
A is 3rd in the sequence (and thus renumbered C), when you update xrefs,
the answer xref will update to C. 

HTH!
