In the question column, you can see four questions which would be asked from the customer. He would be asked about his age, date of birth, place and year. For every correct answer, one point would be added. Similarly, if the patient provides an incorrect answer, a zero would be written against the question. If the score is 4, it simply means that the patient does not have any problems related to cognitive impairment. If the score ranges between 0 and 3, it means that one or more questions have been answered incorrectly.
