Solution

## The correct option is A 31Question I can be answered in 2 ways. Question II can be answered Question I can be answered in 2 ways. Question II can be answered in 2 ways. Similarly questions III, IV, V each can be answered in 2 ways. Hence, total number of possible different answers =2×2×2×2×2=32. There is only one sequence of all correct answers Thus, the total number of sequences are 32 -1 = 31 [Since no student has written all correct answers] Now, as no 2 students have given the same sequence of answers, hence the maximum number of students in the class =31.
