"Count every "F" in the following text..."

One way of reading the test, there are none.

Not sure what the hell that has to do with a medical!!

Whenever you are given anything like this then always work backwards letter by letter. The brain skips words such as "of" but by working in reverse there is no word and so the brain will spot the letters.

Not so smart, I just "study too much" :8

I counsel my PPL students to not try to interpret questions on their writtens ~ as one might do on, let's say, a university exam ~ but to read carefully and select the answer that fits the literal sense of the question most closely.
