Unlimited: If third strike gets past the catcher the runner can advance to the base and it could keep going.... :-)

Correct :3. If the third strike gets past the catcher and the runner advances to base, it's not a strikeout.

The "Correct " is actually wrong. A strikeout is recorded whenever a batter receives a third strike. There are instances of pitchers notching 4 strike outs in a half inning. So it is possible to have a trillion strike outs in a single inning.

It has happening a few dozen times.

4. the correct answer is wrong. You can get as many strikeouts as you want per inning because the ball can get past the catcher but the batter can make it to first. there would be no earned runs in the inning though

The correct answer is 4, by striking out the side and then striking out when the pitcher is at bat himself

You can have unlimited strikeouts in an inning, by the catcher not stopping the 3rd strike, but 1st base must be unoccupied. the most ever accomplished in a game is 5 twice, but those were only exhibition games. 4 is the current record for a regular/playoff game.
