  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`
