Question

In a class test containing 10 questions, 3 marks are awarded for every correct answer, (-1) mark is awarded for every incorrect answer and 0 for the questions not attempted. Srinu gets two correct and six incorrect answers out of eight questions he attempted. What is his total score?

0

2

-2

6

Solution

The correct option is **A**

Marks awarded for one correct answer = +3

Marks awarded for one incorrect answer = -1

Marks awarded for unattempted answer = 0

Of the 10 questions in the test, Srinu has answered 2 questions correctly, 6 questions incorrectly and 2 are not attempted.

So, the total score = 2 × (+3) + 6 × (-1) + 2 × (0)

= 6 - 6 + 0 = 0

Therefore, Srinu's score is 0.

0

Marks awarded for one correct answer = +3

Marks awarded for one incorrect answer = -1

Marks awarded for unattempted answer = 0

Of the 10 questions in the test, Srinu has answered 2 questions correctly, 6 questions incorrectly and 2 are not attempted.

So, the total score = 2 × (+3) + 6 × (-1) + 2 × (0)

= 6 - 6 + 0 = 0

Therefore, Srinu's score is 0.
