Do you think that questions on the exams should be with multiple choice answers or with giving full answer? why?

They have to be multiple choice to allow machine grading. Machine grading lowers the test cost and also removes the possible subjectivity of the grader.

On multiple choice tests, always guess if you are not sure of the right answer. If you can eliminate even one possible answer as being wrong, your score will likely improve overall.

Depends on the subject. For the humanities, yes. For STEM, no.
Lying on the hill, crawling over the windowsill into your living room, they stare out, glass-eyed aimless heads, bodies torn by vultures. You are the man whose hands are rank with the smell of death. - Peter Hammill, "The Emperor in His War Room"
