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

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 1P=
1.0009777 = .9990223 that there is at least once correct answer
