    Here the student has to choose 6 questions from 10
    Here there are 2 sections contains 5 from each section.
    Student are not allowed to attend more than 4 questions from each sections
    Here are the following possible way of taking questions from each sections
    5C4 * 5C2 = 50
    5C3 * 5C3 = 100
    5C2 * 5C4 = 50
    Summing up we get 200 as the possible choice we can make
