Do not make marks on the answer sheet outside of the designated areas. Do not fold the answer sheet. 4. Answer 4 of the 5 short answer questions in SECTION B and cross out the surplus question .

Only multiple choice answers entered on the ANSWER SHEET will be graded. Questions with more than one answer marked will be scored as incorrect. There is no penalty for guessing. In the rare instances where you feel a question is ambiguous, you may write an explanatory sentence in the margin of the exam (not on the answer sheet) next to the question to justify the answer you select. You may change an answer on the answer sheet by completely erasing the incorrect answer. Do not cross out an incorrect answer; the scoring machine will count it as marked. 6.
