Hi Teachers

I'm kind of confused with the phrase of "delete where applicable", do we delete the correct one (to show the correct choice) or delete the incorrect ones (show that they're the unwanted choices)

let's say if there are three choices e.g ( goods / foods / drinks ) ( *delete where applicable ) and I want to choose "goods" do I delete out "foods" and "drinks" OR do I delete "goods", to show I choose goods with the " *delete where applicable " text on it

Thanks

delete the incorrect ones
Sometimes, you will see "delete where inapplicable".

By sense, both should have the same meaning.

delete where applicable = delete where deletions are to be made and

delete where inapplicable = delete those inapplicable.

They are confusing directions. If your choice is "goods" then delete "foods" and "drinks" so that only "goods" remains. At least, that's what I'd do.
that's pretty awkward, where do you see this phrase?

Hi how about "omit where not applicable" ? does it mean that i'll delete my answer?

Please help. thanks!

If it does not apply to your case, don't answer it.
What about when you're told to delete one which is applicable?
