**MathMate**, Sunday, March 4, 2012 at 4:22pmThe answer is

(n,r)/2^n

Here there are 6 questions, so n=6, and

there are 2^6=64 possible sets of answers.

Since 4 of them are right, the number of combinations with 4 correct out of 6 is

(n,r)=(6,4)=6*5/(1*2)=15

What would be the probability that 4 out of six are correct if the answers are completely random?
