Dear shefali

let the markd in the 4 papers are x,y,z,w

 where 0≤x,y,z,w≤m

  x+y+z+w=2m

now our task is to find out the intiger solution of this equation in given condition.

number of solution is   = 2m+4-1C4-1=2m+3C3

but this solution also include those solution in which any variable is greater than m

so we have to subtact those solution

for  x ≥ m+1 .

let  t=x-(m+1)     t≥o

x+y+z+w=2m

t+y+z+w=m -1

solution of this equation = m-1+4-1C4-1=m+2C3

similerly for y ≥ m+1,z ≥ m+1,w ≥ m+1

 so final solution =2m+3C3 -4*m+2C3

                        =(m+1)(2m^2+4m+3)/3
