There is a examination which has two sections each containing 50 questions out of which 20 questions are compulsory in each set or else the paper gets disqualified. In set 1 marking scheme is +4,-2 and for set 2 is +5,-1. A student is able to solve only 17 questions from 100 given. From these 17 how many should be from set 1 to get maximum marks in his exam?

But if student solves only 17 Q's, paper is disqualified. Since minimum 20 in each section. Is there something wrong in my interpretation?
