The longer the statement, the more chance that part of it is false. o Be aware of false logic: Two statements that are true may be linked with a word that makes them false.

The because makes the statement false. o Guess if you don’t know the answer. You have a 50% change of being correct. Multiple Choice o Eliminate the answer(s) that is (are) obviously incorrect. Instructors often structure a multiple-choice question with one statement that is obviously incorrect.
