Question How many wrongs per BLOCK?

Does anyone know how many MAX wrongs i ca to do per block in the STEP1 in order to get a 240+?
i know this is difficult to know but if someone knows a number roughly, i will really appreciate it so i can focus on that.

according to what i heard..there are few questions which are mixed with the blocks which are not scored...they are just for trial basis to see how the students handle such questions...so we cant predict that... i guess there is no way to calculate the score based on the no of questions we have answered correctly in the real exam.....
