Solution

The correct option is C 50
Let the number of questions answered correctly by x

The number of questions answered correctly=90x

Total Marks obtained=60

Marks obtained for correct answer=22

Marks deducted for wrong answer=1(902)=x90

2x+290=60

3x=150

x=1503

x=50

Therefore the number of question answered correctly is 50
