String where each value listed with a semicolon.

Also, you can create an object with multy select. Define value for that multy select. Create a record where you will pick all multy select options. And then query it [SELECT multySelectFiled FROM OBJ WHERE Name = 'Here the name of the object or you can search by ID'] it will return object. Then use System.debug to inspect results. Example:

Account fruitVendor = [SELECT Fruits_Sold__c FROM Account WHERE Name = 'I Sell Fruits'];

System.debug(fruitVendor.Fruits_Sold__c);

Option C - As a string with each value separated by a semicolon is correct.
In a single record, a user selects multiple values from a multi - select pick list and the selected values are represented in apex as a string with each value separated by semi colon. This can be demonstrated as value 1: value 2: value 3.

Apex is a platform used by developers to create software that are used for different kind of services. The selected values cannot be represented as a string with values separated with a comma, element in set or as an element in the list previous. It can only be represented as strong with each value separated by a semicolon.

You need to make a string with selected values that are separated by a semicolon. This means that the answer to this question is C. If in case you are not familiar with Apex, this is a type of development platform that will allow people to create software that will be used for services.

For example, it can be used to create CRM or Customer Relationship Management. This can also be used to create third-party applications easily. This can be complicated to understand for people who have never created software but the more details that you know about this, the easier it will be for you to understand everything that you need.
