How many questions should I study for on exam?

I have an exam coming up and the professor has given us 24 questions to study. Of those 24 questions, 8 will be on the exam. Of the 8 on the exam we will have to answer 5. I want to maximize my study time. How many of the questions do I need to study without taking a chance of not studying for more than 3 that will be on the exam. Given that there is equal probability of him including any of the 24 questions on the exam?

The best tactic would be to look at them all at the basic level of detail and write down notes on what each of them would require as an answer. This means that whatever comes up you are not totally in the dark. Then pick topics that you know little about to write and research about in more detail. This way if those come up you've done lots of preparation, but otherwise it'll be topics you already are quite comfortable with so you should have all bases covered. Good luck - sounds like an unusual exam that you're given the questions in advance!
