Hi,

I have been taking quite a few tests.

But each thing has its own way preparing a candidate.

Cameron does not give us the liberty of dealing with questions straight forward and make us think whether it has multiple or a single answer accept for a few........

But I have seen in others that it mention right at the top whether the question has 1,2,3 answers to it...........

Like its typed (Select One Option/Select two Options)

Can anybody tell me in real exam we do have it mention at top right..... I have heard it that way only........


Thanks in Advance
Arundhati

Indeed, in my SCJA Certification Guides, I don't mention how many answers are correct, only that it is either a single answer (radio button) or multiple answer (check boxes).

HOWEVER, the actual exam tells you how many answers are correct. That's a trend I've seen for every cert exam I've taken, even from IBM. I actually had an IBM question once that had four options, and it told you that four options were correct. Obviously they hadn't proofed that exam too much.

Whether to put the number of correct answers into mock exams is a decision that isn't made with haste. Most writers I've found have agreed to opt out of putting the number of correct answers in to try and really make the student think about the options they are selecting.

Kindest regards, and best of luck!

A logic question.
