Could some one please help me?
And explain to me how they got the answer?

and is there another way besides the tree method?

  • PROBABILITY MATH -

    All we have to exclude is the case when he guessed all of them wrong
    that prob would be (1/2)^10 = 1/1024

    so the prob of getting at least one correct is 1 - 1/1024 = 1023/1024

  • PROBABILITY MATH -

    Take 10/2=5
    possibility of 5 right or 5 wrong because there is only two possible outcomes
    2/100 = .50 (True and False Outcomes)
    There are a total of 10 questions
    .50^10 questions = .0009765625 rounded = .0009777
    use the complement formula 1-P=
    1-.0009777 = .9990223 that there is at least once correct answer
