    \[\large P(2\ spades)=\frac{13C2\times39C4}{52C6}\]

    13C2 means 13 choose 2, or alternatively, the number of combinations of 13 different things taken 2 at a time.

    It depends. Are the cards being replaced after each draw?

    If the cards were replaced after each draw, then none of the answer choices applies.
