    The prob of answering a question right (R) is 1/5, and the prob of answering it wrong (W) is 4/5
    So you want the specific order of
    RRRRW which would be (1/5)^4 (4/5) = 4/3125

    I don't think it requires for it to be times by (4/5)

    it is just asking for possibility of it being correct 4 times the first times..

    so the answer is 1/625


    thank you reiny
