Default intuition and test taking

I have been doing this course in quantum mechanics that has multiple choice testing. After reading the text they give you 4 questions. I can barely understand what they are talking about with neutron spin etc. but I take my best shot. As is often advised, go with your first choice. It's statistically your best chance. I find it amazing how true this can be. I read the 4 statements and see one I like and again I can barely comprehend the stuff. But then if I go with my second guess it'll be wrong and my first choice will be the right one. There must be to some degree intuition guiding.

Probably. On other hand that's why multiple choice is a great means of propaganda. They sit you down to a test, give you a question which is wrong and by intuitively selecting the 'correct' answer you are taught to accept the truth of both the answer and the question - when both can be false.
