Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's how often she's awarded a medal in the past, but my amazing powers of foresight tell me it's definitely 1/1 for this one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u give 1 good question out of 3 quests hence in 24 quests u gave 8 good quests but lana smhow gives u 10 medals hence i assume she found all ur good quests good n gave u a medal for those n gave u 2 medals for 2 of the 16 bad quests n thats 2/16=1/8 hence lana will give u a medal if u gave a good quest or if she liked d bad one so i guess the probability for givin a medal is =1/3+1/8=11/24
