44 q's last might be 32.

Answer all questions. Do your best and at the end if you have some left, just pick all the same answer to get through them. "Pick B" . Its too your advantage to answer every question

but what do you mean by PICK B?.....is my score getting affected if I guess and end up getting wrong answers?.....I mean sort of negative marking if we attempt all questions?

You aren't penalized for picking wrong answers. If you can't get through all questions you need to have a plan. I pick the same letter if I can't get through all questions.

That's interesting....How does picking the same letter help?....what's the logic?
