I have no idea how to troubleshoot the following error.
The requested service, 'http://webservices.freemathtest.com/Service.svc' could not be activated. See the server's diagnostic trace logs for more information.
I don't have access to the server's diagnostic trace logs. This is a shared hosting account.
If it helps, you can see the error at

Sometimes this error could be caused by a tag called 'extendedProtectionPolicy'. Just you need comment or delete this tag and the service finally works.

Which tool/technology are you using to consume the web service.
If .NET, do you've any kind of the following settings generated in web/app .config file (don't match exact, try to serach'em in config file). Sometimes these kind of additional settings get added. Remove them, Regenerate proxy, & try again.
This happened to me once. I regenerated proxy & also removed following from web.config & things started working fine.
