First of all, I do not think this is a duplicate of Which answer do I accept if I have multiple correct answers?. This question was about several answers that referred to the same question.


If I ask several questions or a question containing different parts, what should I do if different answers refer to different questions?

Consider a question about a math task that consists of two subtasks. IMHO there is no sense in creating two different posts for each subtask, if they are directly related. So what do I do if person A answers the first, and person B answers the second subtask in a separate question?

Of course I could (and should) upvote both of them, but I really think that awarding only one answer by accepting it isn't fair to the people who spent their time trying to help me.

This is why I would vote for a new feature that allows accepting more than one answer, if the provided answers are equitable.

As I understand, you want to accept multiple answers in case if you have multiple questions in one question. That's not really good and if I post a question, I care to ask only "one in one". But:

Yes, this happens. As I said, I would avoid it, but if you ask such a question anyway and you feel that those parts can't be split, the best answer is the answer which answers all of the aspects you menioned.

Other answers, which would only partly answer your question, aren't complete answers. Therefore there is no reason to accept it (unless you really want to do it: it's your decision after all). The accepted answer is most often the answer which completely solved the problem, this is why only one accepted answer is allowed.
