Why are there yellow dots in the upper-right corner of some questions?

Yellow dots in the upper-right corner of some questions indicate that the question is part of a multi-part problem. To see a multi-part problem in action, try this synonyms skill. Each dot represents a question within the multi-part problem, so if there are two dots, there are two questions in the multi-part problem. The colored dots show what question you are currently on. Answer each question as you normally would—enter your answer and click Submit—and move on to the following question. The next question of the multi-part problem will build on your knowledge from the previous question. Each question in a multi-part problem is scored separately.
