Solution

## The correct option is D 40Let x be the number of questions answered correctly. Number of questions attempted = 60 - 10 = 50 Number of questions answered incorrectly is =50−x. According to the question, marks obtained is ⇒3x−(50−x)=110 ⇒ 4x−50=110 ⇒ 4x=110+50 ⇒ 4x=160 ⇒ x=1604 ⇒ x=40 Thus, Ranjan has attempted 40 questions correctly.
