Will the test question prompt you this question has only one answer?

I heard that if there are several answers for a question. The test will prompt you that there's fixed-number of answers. But if there's only one answer for some questions, will it prompt you it has only one answer? Or it just doesn't say anything.
BTW, is it possible that all answers all wrong for certain question?(So I don't need to check any one)

The exams uses a CheckboxGroup when there is only one answer, so there's no way to give multiple answers when only one applies.
No one at Sun is quite so perverse as to give you a question with a set of only incorrect answers. They are after all testing proficiency in Java, not your ability to discern when they're messing with you.

And of course, the CheckboxGroup shows up as radio buttons in Windows.
Aside: has anybody out there taken the exam on a non-Windows system? All certification exams I have taken were in Windows.
