Multiple Choice Quiz
There are 22 correct answers in this multiple choice quiz (some questions have multiple answers
that are correct). To achieve a perfect score on the quiz, all correct answers must be given. Each
correct answer is worth 1 point. Each omitted answer or wrong answer reduces the score by 1
point. Percentage score on the quiz is based on the total number of correct answers.
