  1. 1) sounds fine.

    2) How can you determine the percentages without knowing the Standard Deviation? You need a measure of variability.

    3) The probability of picking a reduced DC is 1/6, not reduced = 5/6. The probability of picking 2 of each is 1/6 * 1/6 * 5/6 * 5/6 (multiply).

    4) A random sample means that every student has an equal probability of being in the sample. Reconsider your answer.

    5) Right.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
