Blanks in drag and drop questions

I was looking at the drag and drop question in K&B, pages 160-161. One line of the question looks like this:

In K&B's answer (pages 167-168), "super" into is put into one of these gaps, but it's not specified which. In the actual SCJP exam would it matter which gap you dragged the fragment into? (I wouldn't like to be penalised for, say, putting it next to the brackets, rather than in the first gap).

More generally, will there be questions on the actual exam where gaps should be left unfilled? Could there be questions where there are more than one possible correct answer (which I believe is the case with the K&B question)?

In the actual SCJP exam, everything will be mentioned in the question. So no need to worry about such small things.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
