Help Do we have to ask ALL the questions to pass?

In FA for CS, the practice cases list the questions you need to ask for each case. I wonder if we have to ask ALL those questions to pass or is it OK to miss a few?

And what if our questions are slightly different from the ones on the SP's checklist, will he/she recognizes them as equivalent to the ones on the checklist?
I've regained my honor [99/99].

considering that CS is scored as just pass or fail is it possible that only a 50% score is reqd??
so basically just asking even 50% of the questions and obviously getting the basic communication right wud do it?
