(i) Mohan gets marks for four correct questions = 4 x 5 = 20

He gets marks for six incorrect questions          = 6 x (–2) = –12

Therefore, total scores of Mohan                   = (4 x 5) + [6 x (–2)]

= 20 – 12 = 8

Thus, Mohan gets 8 marks in a class test.

(ii)

Reshma gets marks for five correct questions = 5 x 5 = 25

She gets marks for five incorrect questions = 5 x (–2) = –10

Therefore, total score of Resham = 25 + (–10) = 15

Thus, Reshma gets 15 marks in a class test.

(iii) Heena gets marks for two correct questions = 2 x 5 = 10

She gets marks for five incorrect questions = 5 x (–2) = –10

Therefore, total score of Resham = 10 + (–10) = 0

Thus, Reshma gets 0 marks in a class test.
