small adjustment to my answer.

I just noticed it said, "she answered an even number of questions", I had read it as an even number of correct questions.

so the only possible answer is
92 correct, 2 incorrect

ReportAnswer #2
let the number of correct be x
let the number of incorrect be y

then x - 2y = 88

we know y>0, x<100, x+y < 100

how about y=1 then x = 90
y = 2 , then x = 92
y = 3 then x = 94

y = 4 then x = 96 but she missed some

so the three possible answers are:
90 correct, 1 incorrect
92 correct, 2 incorrect
94 correct, 3 incorrect

all your conditions are met.
