# Suggestion for Brilliant.org..!!

In India, Indian Institute of technology is the biggest institution for the science enthusiasts. Nearly 15 lac students every year try to compete in a race to join in IIT. IIT takes its examination by the name of IIT Advanced!!

From the last two years the exam pattern follows a trend that it asks many Multiple correct type (more than one correct type) questions and integer type questions.

Brilliant.org is now becoming a very good platform to prepare for any competitive exam. It will be great if somehow we have the way to put and solve multiple correct type questions as well.

Vote up, like, comment and share as much as possible, if you wish the suggestion to be implemented..!!

Well, this will be a great feature and quite helpful for everyone to increase the dimensions of thinking about the problem and surely It will be a boon for JEE students.

But for the time being, we can use this feature at our own too, at some restricted Level. I mean to say is that we can give options to the problem in that mean.

$\text{Illustration 1 :}$

Problem 1 :

This is an example. Below are some statements about the problem :

(a).The problem is good !

(b).The problem is excellent!}

(c).The problem is real!}

(d).It's absurd!}

Which of the given options is/are correct ?

Options : $$1. (a),(b) \quad 2.(a),(b),(c) \\ 3.(c),(d) \quad 4.(a),(b),(c),(d) \\ 5. \text{None of the given choices !}$$

$\text{Illustration 2 :}$

Problem 2 :

This is another example. Below are some statements about the problem :

(a).I like the problem!

(b).The problem is not excellent!

(c).The problem is imaginary!

(d).It's not absurd!}

Option (a.) scores 1 point , Option (b.) scores 10 points , Option (c.) scores 50 points , Option (d.) scores 100 points.

How many points does the correct answer score ?

Answer to be submitted : $$\boxed{An \ integer}$$

I hope Brilliant will make this feature available very soon !

Till then enjoy like the above illustrations ! · 1 year, 10 months ago

Sir i had an idea that why don't we start posting problems having multiple correct answers and post it as a integer type question and tell the solver to write the answer....for eg: Let there be a question and we give numbered options(1,2,3,4)itself in the question and it has four options and out of them three are correct and let 1,3,4 options be correct so the solver can write the answer in the integer box as 134... This is my opinion....hope that u like I will post a question acoordingly....please if you like the pattern · 1 year, 10 months ago

Off course, you should post the problems, using your idea. Also mention that write the answer in the increasing order of options. Because if 1,3,4 options are correct, then there can be many combinations like 134,143 etc.

All the best ! · 1 year, 10 months ago

I do agree! · 1 year, 10 months ago

@Rohit Gupta I appreciate you views and idea. This issue had been raised earlier as well. The staff said that it wasn't easy to implement it and there was a healthy debate around it. A solution to the above problem is to give the options as the part of the question itself and in the MCQ options give the eight most probable options out of the fifteen possible. So using single correct option we might as well implement multiple correct functionality.

Hope this helps! · 1 year, 10 months ago

yup................

hat's off for the thought.........................:) · 1 year, 10 months ago

Thanks for the suggestion. Currently, we prefer the simplicity of MCQ being "only 1 correct option", instead of having people constantly second guess "Is this one of those multiple-correct questions?".

As mentioned by others, there are ways to ask a multiple-correct question. If there are 3 choices of less, you could use up all 8 options of an MCQ, by listing out the possibilities. For 4 or more choices, you can ask them to write out the correct choices in increasing order, in an integer-answer format. I feel that these two options are sufficient to deal with such a rare use case. Staff · 1 year, 10 months ago

Yeah There are some good ways suggested, I will try them now..!! Thanks for such quick response on the suggestion!! · 1 year, 10 months ago

Well Sir, How do you rank IISc as a institution? ( I aspire to take admission in that) @Rohit Gupta · 1 year, 10 months ago

IISc is a great institution and has been the academic backbone of research in this country. The Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore) is India’s top ranked university and stands at 25 in a ranking of universities from BRICS. · 1 year, 10 months ago

Thanks for a reply , Sir! I aspire to become a theoretical physicist specializing in string theory. · 1 year, 10 months ago

Sir it seems that you are an iitian....are you??? · 1 year, 10 months ago

Rohit Gupta sir ain't an IITian, but he has produced a lot of IITians through his skills and knowledge.

One of the best teachers I've ever got ! Thanks a lot sir @Rohit Gupta . You're just more than awesome sir ! · 1 year, 10 months ago

Teacher becomes great when he get great students like you. For me before being a grt teacher you need to be a great human being, and rest will automatically follow.

Teaching is a very noble and responsible post to hold and I am proud to be a teacher and students like you makes me more proud!!

Wish you achieve all possible heights in life..!! I am proud on you.!!! · 1 year, 10 months ago

Sandeep sir has rohit sir really taught U formally ? · 1 year, 10 months ago

Yup, when I was in my drop year, Rohit sir were my Physics Faculty.

I was a Big zero in Physics up to 12th class (because no one taught me), I didn't even know about resolution of vectors into components. All these used to be seem blurred to me, totally over my mind. But Rohit sir is an excellent teacher and a great Human Being. His teachings helped me grab a lot about Physics too. · 1 year, 10 months ago

So nice to learn about that! The greatest mathematician on Brilliant was a student of a Great Physicist! · 1 year, 10 months ago

Not the Greatest, neither a Mathematician. Just can say that I'm pretty good at Maths. Btw, thanks for the honor. :P · 1 year, 10 months ago

I am not an IITian my self, I have done my Btech from NSIT. Rest Sandeep has elaborated..!! :P · 1 year, 10 months ago

Sir Why don't U start brilliant classes ? (Just like Sandeep sir) · 1 year, 10 months ago
