2. Explanation:

First time: 3/6 Which is 1/2 to land on a vowel.

Second time, 1/6 to land on P

(1/6) (1/2)

3. Yes it's B. This is another example of conditional probability.

Note that there are four vowels here: U, I, O, E. And there are six letters total. So,
P(vowel) = 4/6

Then you spin again. The probability of getting a P:
P(P) = 1/6

Thus,
P(vowel, then P) = 4/6 * 1/6 = 4/36 = 1/9

hope this helps~ `u`
