a phrase or axis followed by three to five options. Others also come with matching or questions that demand a true/false answers. :

Strategies for testing:

  • Read the instructions carefully
    Identifies whether each question has one or more correct options
    Identifies if you drop points for guessing
    Identifies how long you have to answer (this defines your strategy)
  • Ask a preview test
    Take a look at the questions quickly and answer the easier questions first
    Marks you think you know
  • Check the questions a second time and answer tough questions

  • If time permits, review the questions and your answers
    You may have misread the question the first time

Answering options
Improve your chances, use critical thinking:

Review the options, read the question and try to answer
Select the option that best fits your response

Read the question with each of the options
Try each of the options as a matter of true or false, and select the “truer” response

Strategies to respond to difficult questions:

  • Eliminate options you know are wrong
    If allowed, mark words or signs to eliminate the option
  • Each option gives the “true or false test”:
    This can reduce your selection to the best answer
  • Question options that grammatically do not fit the answer.
  • Question options you are totally unknown.
  • Choice questions containing negative or absolute words.
    Try to replace a qualifying term rather than absolute term, as often instead of always or usually instead of each to see if you can remove it
  • “All previous:”
    If two or three of the choices seem right, chances are that the answer is “all of the above”
  • Answers with numbers:
    Discard the highest and lowest and considers the mid-range of numbers
  • “Options that look alike”
    Probably one is correct; choose the best option, but eliminates basically mean the same thing, and therefore cancel
  • Double negatives:
    It considers that a double negative can create the equivalent of a positive statement
  • Eco options:
    If there are two opposing options together, it is likely that one of them is correct
  • Preferred options that contain qualifiers
    Usually the result is longer includes details that best meet the role of response
  • If two alternatives seem correct,
    Compare the differences,
    Next, please refer to the question to find the best answer


  • As long as there is no penalty,
    Guess or delete options
  • You do not guess if you penalized for guessing
    Or if you have no basis for choosing
  • Use clues to the questions you know
    to answer questions not
  • Change your first response
    when you are sure of the correction, or when other signals in the test you have to change the track.

Remember that you are looking for the best answer,
no one correct answer, and one that must be true all the time, and in all cases, and without exception.

Make sure you skip any questions, If  however, you are convicted that there is no answer is not listed among the options provided.
