Entire question wrong if sub-question is wrong?

Post Thu May 09, 2013 8:34 am
Hi there,

I am curious if the entire question is considered wrong in IR if you get a single sub-part (within a question) wrong?

Thank you

The way they have these answers formatted can make it confusing, but the INFER at the top of the answer isn't saying that the correct answer Can be Inferred, it is telling you what "type" of question they think this is (an infer question, versus say, analyze).
