    Moderate MDM is correct for the scenario described above. If you are using an audit tool, there should be instructions, something like "Draw a line down any column with 2 or 3 circles to identify the type of MDM in that column. Otherwise, draw a line down the column with the 2nd circle from the left." So, in a nutshell, since you don't have a column with 2 or more circles, you throw out the highest level and go with the next one down...Moderate, in this case.

    Does that help?
