Reading comprehension questions answers for competitive exam

Question 1
"What is sixteen and three multiplied?" asked the teacher. The boy blinked. The teacher persisted, and the boy promptly answered: "twenty-four", with, as it seemed to the teacher, a wicked smile on his lips. The boy evidently was trying to fool him and was going contrary on purpose. He had corrected this error repeatedly, and now the boy persisted in saying "twenty-four".

A

B
with the intention to fail in the class test
C
to make some fun in the class

when the teacher persisted in asking
