,Hello, did you have a chance to check it out?
Expert:  FiveStarLaw replied 1 year ago.
Yes I did. I had sent you a message yesterday but you must not have received it.

I can take all of the multiple-choice tests and begin work on it tonight. I think that $1.50 per question would be fair - usually I would charge $2 per question but due to the volume I am willing to accept a $1.50 per question.
Therefore if the multiple-choice test has 30 questions, you would pay $45. If the multiple-choice test has 10 questions, you would pay $15. If the multiple-choice test has 50 questions, you would pay $75
