Giving Direct Solutions to Multiple Choices Questions – As per the guideline, provide detailed steps/explanation for the correct solutions. If you are answering anything just make sure the handwriting is very clear and legible.
Writing comments in answer section about a question – Answer section is for submitting answers only! You might get revoked due to this, and we never want that to happen!

Calculation errors –Please double check the calculation before submitting the solution. Your challenging work will be in vain if you make some calculation errors.
