When answering multiple-choice questions, you should determine the correct answer before reading the answer choices. The objective is to avoid allowing the answer choices to affect your reading of the question.
- When four answer choices are presented, three of them are incorrect. They are called distractors for a very good reason.
- Read each answer choice with close attention.
- Even if answer (A) appears to be the correct choice, do not skip the remaining answer choices. Answer (B), (C), or (D) may be better.
- Treat each answer choice as a true-false question.
