A class is given a list of eight study problems from which five will be part of an upcoming exam. If a given student knows how to solve six of these problems, find the probability that the student will be able to answer:

(a) all five questions on the exam.
(b) exactly eight questions on the exam.
(c) at least nine questions on the exam.
