    The way to do it is to calculate your answer as if the choices were not there, then choose the one that corresponds with your answer. I find multiple-choice easier, because if you don't get an answer that they have given, you know you're wrong, so you can try again and again until you get one of the given answers

    Though bear in mind smarter multiple choice questions will include "wrong answers" as options that you will incorrectly conclude if you make one of the common mistakes people make when solving that type of question.
