  1. Since there are 2 choices for each answer, there are 2^6 = 64 ways to answer all the questions.

    If some may be left unanswered, then we have

    2^6 * 6C6 ways to select and answer all 6
    2^5 * 6C5 ways to select and answer 5
    2^4 * 6C4 ways to select and answer 4
    and so on. Adding them all up, you get 728
