PHP - making a switch statement using id from form input

I'm making a short quiz in PHP that tells you what creature your thinking of based on 4 yes/no questions. I have made it so that depending on your answer to each question you get taken to a different question, I did this using mainly switch statements.

My question is is there any way that I can make a switch statement with the condition as the id from the submit buttons from the form?

echo "<form method ='post' action='Creatures.php'>
<input type='submit' name='answer' id='1' value='Yes' />
<input type='submit' name='answer' id='2' value='No' />
</form>";


This is the form I'm using to display the buttons, I have made it so that each button has a different id so at the end of the quiz, depending on what the id of the last button pressed is, I can display the right answer. Below is what I tried to do but it didn't work.

switch($_POST['id'])
{
case 1: echo "It's a goldfish";
case 2: echo "It's a eel";
}


Also these fields are the only ones which use id's throughout the whole web page, any suggestions on how I can get this to work properly, not necessarily using switch statements?

Answer
switch($_POST['answer']) {

case 'Yes':
   // do soemthing
   break;
case 'No':
   // do something
   break;
}
