Partially correct answers in quiz for MCQ type questions 

Site administrators can now create multiple correct answers for MCQ type questions in quiz. User is alloted certain marks when a question is partially answered correctly. Many a times, quizzes have two similar answers, out of which one is the correct answer although the second answer is also not completely wrong. Thus using this feature, marks can be awarded to users for getting the answer partially correct. Users can be awarded partial marks instead of the complete marks for getting the answer partially correct.
