                  11). What is the best way of answering questions in Assignments?

                  • Proper study of all the relevant teacher’s notes and other relevant resources and trying all practice quizzes and activities prior to the assignment will be the best to answer questions in assignments.

                  • Without properly studying; it is really hard to answer the assignment questions.
                  • Some conditions are applied & introduced to avoid random guessing.

                  • For example, one cannot get any marks by clicking all five choices. Although negative marking scheme is there, the minimum mark for a question is zero. Therefore wrong answers will not affect other questions.

                  • Students will be able to see their replies, only soon after attempting the assignment quiz. (We have implemented some controls to avoid bad practices).
