Cloze Cards Appear as Blank

Simply put, my cards using cloze deletion just do not work; they show up as blank. And I cannot find any solutions online. I've tried Empty Cards as the anki.tenderapp suggests, but it didn't work. Please help, because my midterm is coming up soon and I'm very frustrated!

Thank you,

    This is how my card template looks. And I don't know whether this helps or not, but on AnkiMobile the front card shows up as ca, the back card shows up as cq.

    Please click the Fields button, then Rename, and remove the space at the end of "Text ".
