Which is the most common MCQ option?
The most common MCQ option for most subjects is (3) based on the suggested answers from the MCQ questions from the actual PSLE Examination Questions.
Why do teachers or administrators setting the tests and examinations unconsciously avoid option (1)? This is actually an unconscious effort to place a false answer before the real answer to conceal one’s real intentions, as well as ease the intense feelings of guilt and anxiety associated with mentioning the real answer right at the start. Similarly, teachers or administrators setting the tests and examinations also unconsciously avoid option (4) as it is usually the longest answer, or one that is the most detailed, that is often associated with a better chance of getting it right.
