How multiple choice questions are scored on the actual exam? If i guess 1 of 2 or 1 of 3 answers, do I get some points or the question is total wrong? Where I can see how the exam is scored?
Thank you!

If the question requires to identify correct answers all that apply, that means you need to get them right all, otherwise question is considered as answered incorrectly.

An example:

Which is a vegetable? (Choose all that apply)
a. Tomato
b. Carrot
c. Rubik's cube

If I were to choose only 'a' - that would be considered as incorrect. Because 'b' is also a vegetable. So 0 points from that question.

If you're going through the sample test questions and finding yourself doing that often, probably spend a bit more of a time on styding exam material.
Guess is a last resort option. After all it is a way better option than not to answer question at all. If to be brutally honest, you shouldn't proud of correctly guessed answers - it doesn't prove the knowledge.

If you guess 1of 2 answers, you don't get any marks. You need to choose 2 correct answers. Important point is exam doesn't ask you like choose all that apply. It clearly asks you particular number of correct answers.

That's a very easy one! You get 1 point if you have selected all correct answers; 0 points in all other cases.

Best of luck!
