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.

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… tricky! . 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 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!"
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").
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 sh…ould be 25
Most people believe that the most frequent answer is "B." I have not found any legitimate studies that confirm or deny this. However, it seems pretty consistent with my experi…ence with High School, College, and Graduate exams.

r u insane?? a test is still a test. there is no way. u have to study like for a regular test. if they were designed that way there would be no point
orally In order to pass the U.S. citizenship test and interview, you will need to show an officer of the United States Citizenship & Immigration Service (USCIS; formerly kn…own as the INS) that you can read, write and speak basic English in addition to answering a variety of questions about the United States, its history and its government. You must also have a basic knowledge of U.S. history and government (also known as "civics").
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.
There is not one if the answer placement is randomly generated
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.
Does a multiple choice test question asking for the MOST likely answer eliminate all of the above as a correct answer?
It should. However, multiple choice questions are so widely used and copied that many of them are faulty in several ways, including the addition of all of the above and non…e of the above . The driving force behind multiple choice questions is the relative ease of scoring them, compared to written answers or even fill-in-the-blank. They often do not provide an adequate assessment of the student's knowledge of the subject.
Most IQ tests are multiple choice because that removes the variable of a human grader making subjective choices. IQ should not be about the quality of your test proctor.
The fraction is . (the number of multiple-choicequestions) / (the total number of questions on thetest) . I can't be any more specific be cause you've neglected to m…entioneither of those numbers in the question.
No, although most of it is. There is a writing portion to the ACTtest.
Presumably this means offering various types of items on the test:true/false, multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blanks, etc. All items areof the multiple choice type yet there is s…ome variety; that is, notall of the items are, say, of the true/false type.
