Mathematically there will be 10 of German mauzer bullets and 11 of 0.3 bore bullets ( lowest combination ......can be multiples of choice ) but your question may be , how school children are being taught such questions regarding bullets , teaching violence in standard 4 ?

For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an "Australian treasure!" He was interviewed on the radio recently.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:

GENERAL COSGROVE: ...more

If this is true, then their concept of boer, bullets and transactions in ruppes & paise are expected to be quite clear at that age.
Why involve a name like Talat Aziz in such business when we know this name for beautiful voice of ghazals...?

Training of violence in schools itself. Making them aware of the different kinds of arms and ammunition.
