Hmmm... this is an interesting problem, i presume you would have to somehow use For statements.

You have to declare variables:
one to count students, another four to count answers given.

The simplest way to perform yhe task is to create a loop with
for ... to .. do statement.

Inside the loop you can display the question, and count answers.

After the loop ends you can display output part.

I know you say this isn't homework but it is written almost exactly as I would write an assignment to my students.  

Also Pascal is generally used as a teaching tool and has somewhat limited use in the commercial world.

Since you are new to EE welcome.  EE has a policy and it is spelled out in the membership agreement and on the help pages about homework.  We can answer or guide you on specific questions but are not supposed to do the whole problem.

I am not sure what you mean by the number part.  Can you explain which number you don't understand?

Pascal has limited use in commercial world because it is generally used as a teaching tool.

Every "good" programmer "has to" do everything in C. So he will not care to check what Pascal can do.

Pascal is easy to mix with assembly, so there is not much things you can't do in Pascal.
Pascal is higher level than C, so it is much easier to understand the code, but little more difficult to use assembly. This is ideal for experiments, when it is necesary to modify the code very often.
