We introduce a new concept of certainty and coverage of a parameter of the soft set and present a new decision making approach for the soft set over the universe using the certainty of a parameter. Also, we point out the drawbacks of the reduct definition by pointing out the delusion of Proposition 14 given by Herawan et al.  and provide the revised definition of the reduct of the multi soft set.
