Recently I asked this question and was given the answer 1/4. When I did it I used 1/4 *1/3*1/2* 1/1= 1/24 I was also told to solve using 4!= 24 So which way is right and when do I know what way to use. Why is it 1/4 instead. Please can some one explain I' so confused.

The above is in fact of randomly putting four events in the right order. It is not 1/4.
