$1$

Hint 1

Here given that,

Total number of questions $=20$

Score of correct answer $=7$ points

Score of wrong answer $=-4$

Eric scored $=100$ points

Hint 2

So that mean, the score for all of the correct answers is greater than $100$.

Now we know $7\times 16 = 112$.

Hint 3

Now we have to count how many wrong answers are there if the score is $100$.

Hint 4

Remaining question $=20-(16+3)$

So, $1$ is the correct answer.
