    I think this can be considered as a Bernoulli Trial. In that case, you could say that the student is in p=3/4 right and in p=1-p=1/4 false. This are of course only initial conditions, if I understand the problem correctly.

    For a. I got (15C10)/20C10 b. (15C8)X(5C2)/(20C10) Both are correct. C has me stumped.
