On Problem 1 of PS12, for the doesClear() method, are we supposed to generate a random number, and if it's higher than self.clearProb, return True? I am confused by the statement "this method returns True with probability self.clearProb". Thank you.

    Similarly, for the reproduce() method, generate a random number and if it's higher than self.maxBirthProb * (1 - popDensity), the virus does get to reproduce and then we instantiate a new SimpleVirus object? Thanks!
