How scoring is done for questions that ask us to choose more than one answer?

Hello all,

I guess my question is really a
trivial one, but how is the scoring done for questions that ask us to choose more than one answer from the choices?. Assume that I have to choose 3 choices for a given question and I only get 2 correct, would I still get a zero for that question?.

Thanks for your time
Sashi

In multiple-choice questions you are required to select all the correct answers. So, if the question asks for 3 answers and you provided only 2 of them correctly you will get zero for that question.
