Why are the OASR and OABCL said to have 113 problem items when the item numbers on pages 2 and 3 go to 123?

Answer: Item 49 includes 11 items for physical complaints, designated as a through k. These 11 items, plus the remaining 102 problem items sum to 113 problem items. The item numbers are increased by the 20 Personal Strengths items, which are not counted in the Total Problems score. The Total Problems score is the sum of 1s and 2s for the 113 problem items. If all 113 items were rated 2, the Total Problems score would be 226.
