Which four? I don't want to make those mistakes again.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Final score 90

I can accept #4. The page I was reading did not say anything about substance use, so it is possible that more than half of ADHD sufferers use drugs.
I do disagree with #19, since self-esteem issues can begin as early as 3 years old, so that is the age that positive self-esteem would begin. It 3 not early enough for the opinion of the book to be "early childhood?"
