In a multi-part IR question, if you get say 2 out of the 3 questions correct, do you get 0/1 for the question as a whole?

Seems as though this might be the case from the practice tests I've been doing, if it is indeed the case then that's pretty rough...

Q: Some of the Integrated Reasoning questions require multiple responses. Is there partial credit if I get some but not all of the parts correct?
A: You must get all parts of the question correct to receive credit. The questions are designed to measure your Integrated Reasoning skills, and the responses to a single question are interrelated so that answering them all correctly demonstrates your ability to integrate data to solve complex problems. Additionally, the IR score scale has been designed to reward a candidate’s ability to synthesize multiple streams of information and evaluate possible outcomes as opposed to randomly guessing an answer.

Hope it helps.

The multiple-choice questions--at least, the dichotomous choice questions, where you pick yes or no to three statements--aren't as hard as they seem. Three questions, with two possible answer choices each, means 2^3=8 total possible combinations. That's not too many more than on a typical 5-choice multiple choice question.
