the probability of answering correct one question is 1/4 and wrong is 3/4;
now he has to correct 8 question so the probability of doing so is (1/4)^8 and he has to do 7 questions wrong at the same time so the probability of doing 7 question wrong is (1-1/4)^7=(3/4)^7
he can choose 8 questions out of five in 15C8 ways..
now the probability is (15C8)(1/4)^8(3/4)^7*100%=1.31%
