exam marking method

Hi there,

I am currently studying for Web Component Developer exam and practicing mock exams. My question is: does anyone know how a particular multiple-choice question is marked where it would say "choose all that apply"?

Here is an example from one of the books I study to give you precise idea what I mean:

"Which security mechanisms always operate independently of the transport layer? (Choose all that apply)

A. authorization
B. data integrity
C. authentication
D. confidentiality"

My answer to this question was A and C. However, the right answer was only A. So, how would my answer be marked? Would I get "incorrect" for everything or would I at least get a partial mark? Does anybody with authority have an answer to my question? It would help me adjust my studying one way or another.

Thanks,
Victor.

    As far as I know - incorrect.
    Does anybody with authority have an answer to my question?
    No, this is a user to user forum.
    It would help me adjust my studying one way or another.
    I wonder how? If the answer would have been partial mark, you would have slacked off more?
