  • Probability -

    The 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?
