All multiple choice questions comprise:
a) the correct answer;
b) a similar answer that is correct in one variable but not a second;
c) another similar answer that is correct in the second variable but not the first;
d) an answer that includes both of the incorrect variables so that canny examinees cannot deduce the correct answer merely by finding the common variables;
e) a wildly different answer that is obviously wrong to give succour to F-grade candidates and examiners an opportunity to tell a gag, thus enlivening a job which consists of little more than shuffling the same questions from year to year;
f) all of the above; or
g) some of the above.
