If the answer is correct, write TRUE. After that, there’s a pop-up that will tell you whether or not your answer is correct. To know why the answer is correct or incorrect, you can click the pop-up.

The good thing is that clicking the pop-up does not reduce your overall score.

On the other hand, if you think the statement is incorrect, write FALSE. The same thing, a pop-up will also appear telling you the reason why your answer is wrong. 

The mechanics of answering the 20 questionnaires is so easy.

Again, keep in mind not to leave an unanswered question. Push yourself to answer the entire questions to get a high chance of getting a perfect score.
