I agree, I tripped up several times on questions like that too.
I went into the test expecting more questions like "What is the most accurate test?" or "What is the best initial step in treatment?"
But majority of questions asked "What is the most appropriate step?" which is hard, because usually the questions were tricky and you're not sure if it should be a test or treatment/management.
