There are 61 questions on the exam, and we get 2 hours to complete them.
How many questions are these 61 questions randomly chosen from?

Well randomly chosen from isn't quite right. But I am not sure if I can say more.

You'll get proportional numbers of questions on each exam topic so your exam will be balanced by topic the same way as all other people's exams. I don't know how many questions are the in the entire pool from which they take questions. It really doesn't matter. Knowing how many questions are in the entire pool won't help you on the exam in any way. All you need to know is that every exam objective will be covered.
