    The answer is given below :

    No. of correct answers = 25

    So, marks secured = 25 × 4 = 100

    Let, he did x no. of incorrect answers.

    So, marks be cut = x × (-2) = -2x

    Thus,

    100 – 2x = 68

    => 2x = 100 – 68

    => 2x = 32

    => x = 16

    So, Rohit did 16 incorrect answers and in total he attempted (25 + 16) = 41 questions.
