Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@salman_09 Would you read the following and determine what you think about it? Thanks. Insight from @Phone_A_Friend_SS_from_California "I think the answer is 1.4. If x is the number right score than 10x would be the number wrong score. If M is the st. dev. of right scores then 10M is the mean of the wrong scores. (assuming here that any nonright response, including leaving answer space blank, is a wrong score. The sd. dev. formula for number right involves summing (xM)^2. The sd. dev. formula for number wrong scores involves summing [(10x)  (10M)]^2 = (x+M)^2 = (xM)^2."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let the number of students = s Then the number of questions answered = 10s Let the number of right answers = r The average number of questions answered correctly per student = r/s The number of questions answered incorrectly = 10s  r The average number of wrong answers is\[\frac{10sr}{s}=10\frac{r}{s}=106.2=3.8\]
