Let the number of questions the student gets correct be x

Since the total questions he answers is 20, the number of questions he gets incorrect is 20-x

Since the score the student scores is 44, if the student answered 2 more questions correctly,

The equation formed will be 4(x+2) - 2(20-x-2) = 44

4(x+2) - 2(18-x) = 44

4x + 8 - 36 + 2x = 44

6x = 72

x = 12

Therefore, the student answers 8(20-x) questions incorrectly (Option B)
