How many ways are there to answer a 10-question true/false test, where at least $$8$$ of the questions have been answered with a false?

There are 2 options for 1 question

There are another 2 options for the other question

The remaining 8 must all be false.

There are $$10 \choose 8$$ ways to choose which questions are guaranteed to be false

So, in total, there is: $$2 \times 2 \times {10 \choose 8} = \color{brown}\boxed{180}$$ ways to answer.
