    There are dozens of testing companies and thousands of tests with hundreds of variations each.

    It is mathematically highly improbable that b & c are never correct on any test by any company or agency anywhere ever.

    Mathematics aside, we’re not here to help you cheat even if your question wasn’t stupid.

    Know the answers and schemes won’t be necessary.

      It depends! Are you taking an on-line or paper and pencil version of the test? What day of the week are you taking the test? How many questions are there on the test?

      Depending on the version, it's true except when you are taking either version on any day of the week ending in "y."



      Depending on the type of test I can tell you for sure that there is always one best / better answer or one right answer of all the answer options. Psychological tests are different than aptitude tests in answers and how they are graded or scored. Some departments use a sliding scale, some use a go, no go type rating and others use different parameters.

      Just answer all the questions honestly.

        There is no "right" answer on psychological tests. The point is to try to establish a personality profile on someone and compare it to what the hiring agency wants.

        And, assuming that there was a "right" or "wrong" question on such a test, and we knew the correct/incorrect answer, why do you think we would tell anyone? It would certainly not benefit active or retired LEO's to help someone to get an advantage on a written test.

          OP, I would say that you are incorrect. That would be a very bizarre test.

            This post tells me so much more about your suitability for LE than any step of the hiring process ever could.

              Apparently the applicant pool, lately, isn't looking so well across the country.

                But there definitely CAN be a WRONG answer

                Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important
