Still now I was thinking that - depending on the answer, they will give some POSITIVE marks. I never thought of negative marks. If anyone know, please share with me also.

Thanks,
Recky

No. There is no penalty for a wrong answer. So you should always answer all the questions. If you dont know the answer, then eliminate those which are obviously wrong and make a guess from the other alternatives.

NO, THERE IS NO NEGATIVE MARKING ON THE WRONG ANSWER, BUT WHEN YOU DONT KNOW THE ANSWER, JUST ELIMINATE THE CHOICES AND MAKE AN EDUCATED GUESS, IF YOUR GUESS IS NEAR TO THE ACTUAL ANSWER, YOU WILL GET SOME POSITIVE POINTS FOR THAT.THATS FOR SURE
