The FCC began using multiple choice questions for amateur operator examinations in 1940.  It moved to all multiple choice questions in 1960.

I took my novice exam over the Christmas break in 1959. I was 14 at the time. One year later during thr break, I took my conditional exam. I lived past the distance to a FCC exam place. Most of the test was multiple choice, but there were a couple diagrams on the test and you had to find the mistake on their diagram, this answer was not multiple choice. The best way to find the mistake was to glance at the diagram, just enough to recognise what it was. Then draw the diagram on your scratch paper, then compare the two and find the mistake. Yes, it snowed both test times

I am still wondering how one goes about "writing" a schematic.  Seems to me that
the concept "SPELLS TROUBLE".
