What is the most common answer on multiple choice tests?
Some one says its B and that is very incorrect. the real answer is C. One must remember that there are better strategies to use than which letter is statistically the most common. That can vary greatly from test to test. A better method is to go through the test 3 times. The first time, answer the questions you know the answer to. The second time, answer those that you can eliminate two choices, more if there are more than four choices. If you do this, you increase your chances of choosing the right answer from 1 in 4 to 1 in 2. The third time, answer the questions you weren't able to eliminate two of the choices for. Hopefully, this will only be 2 or 3 questions, and there might be some clues in the test itself that will help you eliminate one or two of the choices.

I remember, in college, reading a study where someone took tens of thousands of multiple-choice tests from different disciplines and studies. The result was that, on a standar…d 4-choice test, the letter "C" came up more than 28% of the time as an answer. This was due to "writer's bias," and the author assumed it was because the letter "C" - or the third choice - would "be hidden" as a selection. A small deviation from 25%, sure, but now, as a high-school teacher and an Ohio graduation test-prep tutor, I tell my kids that, if they come across a question where they absolutely can't use deduction and/or find an educated guess (e.g., "What is the capital of Mongolia?" with 4 similar answers), to pick the letter "C" - you have at least a 1 in 4 chance of being right, and if you consistently pick "C" in these circumstances (hopefully only once or twice per test!), you have a slightly mathematically higher chance of getting that question right... maybe only a fraction higher, but at that point, "Play the numbers!"
Answer On any multiple choice test if you follow a few simple steps you have a better chance of finishing with a good score. 1. First answer the ques…tions you are sure of. 2. If you positivly do NOT know an answer, choose either the "longest answer" or "C". You'll have a better chance of getting it right. This is by no means foolproof or guarenteed. The BEST way to answer any test is to study and be prepared.

you should be given a certain number of boxes and will either have to put a tick or cross in the box you think is the right answer.
When a multiple choice test is answered, a pencil mark is drawn in a small area (often looking like this [ A ] before completion) on an answer sheet to indicate the chosen res…ponse. The sheets are then fed into a machine which automatically reads the position of these marks, relays this information to a computer which interprets the data, processes it against a programmed data base and produces a response. In a test, the result is displayed as marks or a percentage. The system can also be used to compile reports or supply a fast way of entering numbers for a lottery draw. The machine that reads the sheets is called an Optical Mark Reader (OMR for short). It works by light reflecting off the paper being picked up by a sensor. Where there are marks, less light is reflected and the relative position of the mark indicates the answer given. The position of the marks is calculated with the help of fixed marks on the paper which indicate the origin point. Some machines are programmed so that it doesn't matter which way round the paper is inserted, it still gives the desired data. The system does rely on the use of specific forms: blank paper with lots of pencil dots is not an option!
Which number should come next at the end of this series: 1, 4, 9, 16? 1^2=1 2^2=4 3^2=9 4^2=16 5^2=25 Therefore, the next number should be 25
Multiple choice tests can be quite easy or quite hard. Here are some tips for learning how to take them: Read the question carefully -- many questions are designed to be tric…ky!Read each answer carefully for the same reason.There is almost always one answer that is totally wrong -- cross that out immediately.Try to eliminate at least one other answer that is incorrect.If you cannot chose between the final two answers, try the following:If it is a math problem, work out the problem backwards using each choice to see which is the correct one.If it is a word problem, try working that backwards - make the answer into a question and see if it matches the question best.If all else fails and you have no idea at all, go with your first guess and don't change it.
I don't know that any multiple can be more common than any other and if you mean most as in greatest, that's an infinite amount and won't be any help either. Let's stick with …the LCM, which is 24. Other common multiples include: 48,72,96
On a well-prepared test, the answers are totally random, and you will not be able to predict which one will be more common. On a less well-prepared test, "all of the above" or… "none of the above" are usually the correct answer. The best way to handle a multiple choice test is to eliminate anything that you are certain is wrong, and try to narrow the choices down to just two (or "all of the above").
There is no way to know what the most common multiple choice questions for APA style are, because many teachers may make their own tests. You should be prepared to answer ques…tions about what is included in the manuscript structure, what types of papers APA style is used for, the formatting of the paper (spacing, font, etc), reducing bias in language, etc. For a tutorial of APA Style, go to the Related Link below.

"Another important part of being a wise health care consumer is to know some basic facts on common health tests and how often you should have them." / … The "Health Tests & When to Have Them" chart provides basic guidelines for healthy individuals who are experiencing no symptoms of illness. If you have an increased risk or family history of a particular illness, testing may need to be done earlier or more often. The National Cancer Institute recommends that routine mammograms begin at age 40. For women at high risk, however, i.e., women who have a mother or sister who has breast cancer, it would be advisable to have a first mammogram ten years earlier than the age at which their mother or sister developed breast cancer. That means that if their mother was 42 at the time of diagnosis, they should have their baseline mammogram at 32. Recommendations for when and how often to have mammograms vary from different organizations. Women should check with their health care provider for his or her recommendation for mammograms and find out if and when mammograms are covered by their health plan. This applies to other tests, as well, for both women and men. /
