I think you have to say that the student answered all the 25 questions.
Let us suppose that (the student answered all questions). Let be the number of correct answers so the number of wrong answer will be
So his mark is
2* correct answer - 1* wrong answers,
since he got 35 marks, that means:
that is
hence
So the student has 20 correct answers and 5 wrong answers,
2*20=40
-5 for the wrong answers
that is 40-5 =35!
