    the comma, comma, and rule means that, if you get a question and the answer choices have a series of choices seperated by commas.......for example a.) tachycardia, sob, and palpitations........ all of the answer choices have to be correct for the whole entire selection to be correct. if one of the answers seperated by commas does not apply to the question you are trying to answer, the whole answer is incorrect and you must not choose that one. i hope this helps you.
