What is wrong with the following question?
I need to visit my friend, to wash my bike, and buy six stamps.
Does it require any change in punctuation?
I think that the sentence should be'I need to visit my friend to wash my bike and buy six stamps.'
Even if you had to use commas in this sentence, it could have been like this:I need to visit my friend,wash my bike and buy six stamps.
There is no need of using commas in this sentence. We use a comma for different purposes.
1.To separate the elements when they are in a series.(For example:She is beautiful, efficient in her work and honest.)
2.To connect two independent phrases.(For example:He is poor,but he is happy.)
There are many more uses of 'comma'. You might as well visit this site for more details:www.wikihow.com
I hope this helps.

In terms of punctuation, most people do not like a comma before and so would find the first one enough. But those who like the "Oxford Comma" would have all three, as in your example.
Another point is that the second to is superfluous.
Good luck with the test!
