Q on multiple choice format in part 1

Hia all,

I am taking part 1 on monday 14/2 and have a question on multiple choice questions:
Do they specify the number of correct answers or do they say "Select All correct questions".
For example, if there is a question with 5 possible answers and only 3 correct, do they say "Choose 3" ?

Yes most of the questions would tell you how many answers to select. In addition to that there might be drag and drop type questions which may not specifically say that (since it does not make sense to mention the number of correct answers ). Also do not be panic if you see one or two questions asking you to select "all that apply" (I do not remember having any in my exam though ...)

Good luck!

Welcome to CodeRanch!

All my questions said how many choices there were.
