Solution

True/false questions can be answered in 2 ways either by making it true or false.

∴ each of the 5 questions can be answered in 2 different ways.

∴ total number of different sequences of answers

25 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 = 32

Out of these one sequence is of correct answers and no student has written all correct answers.

Hence, the maximum number of students in the class

= 32 – 1

= 31

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
