Answer:

Multiple choice questions = 5

True questions = 15

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that:

Total number of questions = 20

Total worth of point = 100

Multiple choice questions (M) = 11 points each

True false questions (T) = 3 points each

Hence,

M + T= 20 ____(1)

11M + 3T = 100 ____(2)

M = 20 – T

Using the relation in (2)

11(20 – T) + 3T= 100

220 – 11T + 3T= 100

220 – 8T = 100

-8Tf = 100 – 220

-8T = – 120

T = 120/8

T = 15

Mc = 20 – 15

Mc = 5

Multiple choice questions = 5

True false questions = 15
