Explain the details of steps in the answer. u cannot just write final answer in numbers.
you are not doing right(goes to pranjal) by asking 3 questions in one question and that only worth 5 marks.
Ok
Sir ji (goes to Kvnmurty), the 1st answer is incorrect.(According to you)For the correct answers (28 correct answers) he gets 28*2=56 marks and since you have answered that there are 30 questions,he answered 2 wrong and hence -1*2=-2 marks are deducted out of his total,making it 56-2=54, not 56.Infact, Pranjal had to add a detail himself that how many questions were there and then only it is answerable.

1.  56 marks are scored on right answers, so number of questions answered correctly = 56 / 2 = 28
Number of questions answered incorrectly = - 2 marks  / -1 = 2
total  number of questions : 28+2= 30

2. N = 40
English = 40 * 1/5  = 8
Maths = 40 * 2/5 = 16
Science = 40 - 8 - 16 = 16
Fraction for science = 16/40 = 2/5

3) Trunk = 27.6 kg     Suitcase = T * 5/6 = 27.6 * 5/6 = 23 kg

Bags = Suitcase * 1/8 = 23/8 = 2.875 kg
Suitcase + Bag = 25.875 kg       = Suitcase ( 1 + 1/8) = 23 * 9/8 kg

4)  - 57 x (-19) + 57
-57 ( -19  - 1 ) = -57 * -20  = 1140
Property we used here is the distributive property (of numbers) of multiplication over addition (or subtraction).
