lol you guys, none of the penn foster exams are exactly alike. all of them are different. when ms. ruby put the answer with the questions she put them there for the question on THIS exam(the one posted here). so obviously the questions and answers wont be in the same spots as in "A" "B" "C" or "D" youll have to look for the answers and put them down. some questions on this exam might not be on the one you're taking, vice versa.
