Could someone please tell me if I am on track with my answer?

Jack is taking a four-item true-false test. He has no knowledge about the subject of the test and decides to flip a coin to answer the items. What is the probability that he receives a perfect score? What is the probability on a 10-item test?

P(coin being correct in a 4 item t or f test) = 2/4

P(coin being correct in a 10 item t or f test) = 2/10 or 1/5
