  1. Varsha says:

    is there any alternative answers that can match with our answer
    example-in question 21 the answer I have written is musical instrument.
    is it correct?

  2. Pavel says:

    I wonder, if all the correct answers are counted for multiple choice questions despite their order. For instance, if I responded with B, E and H for ##11-13, would it be counted as 2 credits, whereas it should be E, F and H, correspondingly? My concern is about taking into account the answer E, which is actually the right one, but may be given either earlier or later than the prescribed answers’ order within the same questions’ range, from 11 to 13 in that particular case. That appears to be quite a common question, doesn’t it?
    Thank you in advance!
