PRELIMINARY REMARKS:
The test consists of 8 questions with 4 possible answers to choose one (Questions from 1 to 8) and
2 additional questions with no given answers. The point value of each of the questions 18 is:
1 if the chosen answer is the right one.
0 if no answer is chosen.
-0.3 if the chosen answer is wrong.
The point value of each of the last two questions is 1 (maximum).
Duration of the test: 1 hour.
Mark your solutions with a dark ink pen (no pencil!).
No calculators can be used.
