Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

number of question to answer=2

number of all question=8

so the number of different groups to choose=8C2

8C2=8!/(8-2)!2!

=8!/6!2!

=8*7*6!/6!2!

=56/2

=28

so the number of different groups to choose=28

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
