    "Note: THERE WILL BE PENALTY (NEGATIVE MARKING) FOR WRONG ANSWERS
    MARKED BY A CANDIDATE IN THE OBJECTIVE TYPE QUESTION PAPERS.

    (i) There are four alternatives for the answer to every question. For each question for
    which a wrong answer has been given by the candidate, one third (0.33) of the
    marks assigned to that question will be deducted as penalty.

    (ii) If a candidate gives more than one answer, it will be treated as a wrong answer
    even if one of the given answer happens to be correct and there will be same
