### Solution:

The number of way6 that the candidate may select
(i) if 2 questions from. A and 4 questions from B ${=}^{5}{\mathrm{C}}_{2}{×}^{5}{\mathrm{C}}_{4}=50$
(ii) 3 questions from A and 3 questions from B ${=}^{5}{\mathrm{C}}_{3}{×}^{5}{\mathrm{C}}_{3}=100$
(iii) 4 questions from 4 and 2 questions from B ${=}^{5}{\mathrm{C}}_{4}{×}^{5}{\mathrm{C}}_{2}=50$
Hence, total number of ways = 50 + 100 + 50 = 200  Register to Get Free Mock Test and Study Material
