  1. right = r
    wrong = w

    so you want
    rrw
    rwr
    wrr
    each of the above has a prob of 1/4 x 1/4 x 3/4 = 3/16

    so the prob of getting 2 out of 3 correct is 3(3/16) = 9/16

  2. that should have said:

    each of the above has a prob of 1/4 x 1/4 x 3/4 = 3/64

    so the prob of getting 2 out of 3 correct is 3(3/64) = 9/64
