There are 4 spots for the questions that are true, and the remaining 6 must go for the ones that are false.

There are \({10 \choose 4} = {10! \over 6! \times 4!} = \color{brown}\boxed{210}\) possible answer keys.

Note that this is the same thing as choosing 6 spots for the questions that are false.
