Dear Student,
Hi. I needed to 'dissect' your post a bit. I have deducted that your question is regarding how True and False questions should be answered. You are also referring to the 'choices' question format so I am assuming that you are talking about multiple-choice questions. So, how do we answer True and False questions and how is it different from multiple-choice (where you choose from a, b, c, d answers)?

When we ask true or false questions, we basically are looking for the answer of either - you must choose between 'true or false'. Usually this is an evaluation of a statement. Below, I will give you an example of how true & false questions are answered in 2 ways - one with the choice of only True or False as answers, the other includes a 'defense' of the answer. The question is simple but comes from the 'natural science' domain. For example:

"The Sky is Blue. True or False?" - here you are asked to answer whether this is right or wrong. You can answer "true" for this question. And yes, you can 'defend' your answer, ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides guidance in how to answer true and false & multiple choice questions.
