Quick Question re: Fielder's Choice

Are runs scored on a play on which the batter hits into a fielder's choice considered "earned?" Thanks-

yeah, it is. It is also an RBI, however a double play is earned, yet it is not an RBI.

Haha, sorry that was badly written.

The answer to the original question is yes. In addition, for a fielder's choice, the batter is awarded an RBI. However, on a double play, it is still an earned run, however no RBI is granted. Make sense?
