Hi

I have worked it out and I get the same answer as you do.

-KZNKVI. There must be a misprint

I've checked my copy of this questions which is in the downloaded E paper - and the answer is shown as KZNKVI - which is correct.

The answer options are not the ones you mention.

May be you have purchased the book which is an older version?

Hi

I'll try to explain the difference between the published papers and the e-papers.

The published papers were printed earlier this year after undergoing a series of proof readings. Despite this a couple of errors appear to have gone undetected and a short erratum is currently being prepared. The next print run shortly will obviously address these issues.

The e-papers contain the same questions as the published papers. Because there are no printing costs, on our part, the e-papers cost 50% less than the published papers to purchase.

Due to the nature of e-papers, they can be amended instantly. Consequently the e-papers now contain a near perfect set of questions, answer sheets and marking schemes.

Why purchase physical papers if they contain a couple of errors and are more expensive? The physical papers have been created to closely replicate the real test, due to the software that creates e-paper answer sheets there is a difference between the physical papers and the e-papers.

Keeping things into perspective the industry standard for errors in question sets is 15 per 1,000 questions after proof reading. Ours is significantly less.

Regards

Mike

With questions of this type it is essential to be able to write down the workings - any advice on whether it is allowed to write on the question paper (presumably not the answer paper if it is to be electronically marked) - or is scrap paper provided?
mamy thanks
best regards,
