McMaster University VERSION 1
Instructors: Drs. P. BritGccG..bn,,
This test contains 20 numbered pages printed on both sides. There are 25 multiple-choice
questions appearing on pa ges numbered 3 to 17. Page 18 is extra sp ace for rough work.
Page 19 includes some useful data and equations, and there is a periodic table on page 20.
You may tear off the last page to view the periodic table and the data provided.
You must enter your name and student number on this question sheet, as well as on
the answer sheet. Your invigilator will be checking your student card for identification.
You are responsible for ensuring that your copy of the question paper is complete.
Bring any discrepancy to the attention of your invigilator.
Questions 1 to 19 are each worth 2 marks, que stions 20 – 25 are each worth 3 marks; the
total marks available are 56. There is no additional penalty for incorrect answers.
BE SURE TO ENTER THE CORRECT VERSION OF YOUR TEST (shown near
the top of page 1), IN THE SPACE PROVIDED ON THE ANSWER SHEET.
ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS ON THE ANSWER SHEET, IN PENCIL.
Instructions for entering multiple-choice answers are given on page 2.
SELECT ONE AND ONLY ONE ANSWER FOR EACH QUESTION from the
answers (A) through (E). No work written on the question sheets will be marked.
The question sheets may be collected and re viewed in cases of suspected academic
Academic dishonesty may include, among other actions, communication of any kind
(verbal, visual, etc.) between students, sharing of mate rials between students, copying or
looking at other students’ work. If you have a problem please ask the invigilator to deal
with it for you. Do not make contact with othe r students directly. Try to keep your eyes
on your own paper – looking around the room may be interpreted as an attempt to copy.
Only Casio FX 991 electronic calculators may be used; but they must NOT be transferred
between students. Use of peri odic tables or any aids, other than those provided, is not

OMR EXAMINATION – STUDENT INSTRUCTIONS
NOTE: IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT THE ANSWER
SHEET IS PROPERLY COMPLETED: YOUT EXAMINIATION RESULT
DEPENDS UPON PROPER ATTENTION TO THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
The scanner, which reads the sheets, senses the bubble shaded areas by their non-reflection of
light. A heavy mark must be made, completely filling the circular bubble, with an HB pencil.
Marks made with a pen will NOT be sensed. Erasures must be thorough or the scanner will still
sense a mark. Do NOT use correction fluid on the sheets. Do NOT put any unnecessary marks
or writing on the sheet.
1. On SIDE 1 (red side) of the form, in the top box, in pen, print your student number, name,
course name, (section number, instructor name) and the date in the spaces provided. Then
you MUST write your signature, in the space marked SIGNATURE.
2. In the second box, with a pencil, mark your student number, exam version number (mark
“1”, “2”, “3” or “4” and do not use the “0” bubble) (and course section number) in the space
provided and fill in the corresponding bubble numbers underneath.
3. Answers: mark only ONE choice from the alternatives (,2,3,4,5 or A,B,C,D,E) provided for
each question. If there is a True/False question, enter response o 1 (or A) as True, and 2 (or
B) as False. The question number is to the left of the bubbles. Make sure that the number of
the question on the scan sheet is the same as the number on the test paper.
4. Pay particular attention to the Marking+ Directions on the form.
5. Begin answering the question using the first set of bubbles, marked “1”.
