i think they get counted as incorrect when you leave them blank , so might as well put a blind guess. If they are DS questions , you must either go for C or E which are the answers 80 % of time. So if you are lucky, then 1 out of 5 might turn out to be true.

Thanks,

NEVER EVER leave any question blank.

unanswered questions have heavier penalties than do wrongly marked questions.

What amit said =]

If you have about a minute left and 5 questions to go, I would blindly guess on the next four questions and then take the minute to solve the very last question. Since you blindly guessed 4 questions, the 5th one should be easier and you might actually be able to solve it in one minute.
