Formula for picking items from n set: \(\frac{n!}{r!(n-r)!}\)

 

Since you are trying to find the combinations for a ten question test with 4 true and 6 false, you can just think it as picking 4 items from a set of 10 or picking 6 items from a set of 10.

 

Note: There are the same amount of combinations picking 4 items from a set of 10 is the same thing as picking 6 items from a set of 10

 

 

Now use the formula.
