The assessment had one question that had no correct answer (as far as I can tell); one question with multiple correct answers (one answer had to be correct if you make some logical deductions based on names used; and two others could have been correct based on conditions that were not specified in the question); and two questions that, although containing minor differences in wording, seemed to be duplicates.
