USA Number of questions per block on CK

Is it true that people are getting less than 40 questions on the real exam for some blocks? I heard that some people have gotten as low as 20 questions on a block. Are the questions longer if you have less? I would prefer 40 questions so that the questions don't carry so much weight.

On my exam I got 40 questions on all blocks except one which had 38 questions (this one was with drug ad and abstract q)

I concur with that. I got the same number of questions on my blocks as well. I think that's the case with all exams taken after July 10.

Can anyone tell about how many questions can you get wrong in each block with the new pattern of CK that is 40 questions each block and still get a 230-240+ score
