Question

A student is taking a multiple-choice quiz in which each question has five possible answers, exactly one of which is correct. He knows 85% of the material being tested. Assume the teacher has chosen the questions independently and at random from among all the questions she could have chosen.

When the student knows the correct answer to a given question, he has a 98% chance of marking it correctly. When he does not know the answer, he answers by marking at random one of the five possible answers. (Recall that “at random” means that each of the five possible answers is equally likely.)

For any question selected at random from the quiz, let K be the event that the student knows the correct answer and let M be the event that he marks the correct answer.

1) Which number is P(K)

2) Suppose a question is selected at random from the quiz.

(a) Calculate P(K ∩ M), the probability that the student knows the correct answer and marks it correctly.

(b) Calculate P(M), the probability of marking the correct answer.

(c) Calculate P(K I M), the probability that the student knows the answer to the question, given that he marked it correctly.

(d) Calculate P (K ∪ M )

3) Now suppose 3 questions are selected at random from the quiz. Calculate the probability that the student marks all three correctly. Assume that the student’s responses to different questions are independent of each other.

Answer #1

A Student takes a multiple choice Quiz where there are "n"
possible answers in each question.
1- The Student answers the question correctly if the Student knows
the answer.
2- The Student answers the question randomly if the Student doesn't
know the answer.
3- Suppose that the Quiz has 20 questions, and that the Student
knows "80%" of the questions correctly.
what is the expected number of questions that the Student will get
correctly?

A multiple choice quiz involves 30 questions, each with 5
alternative answers. Each question is awarded 10 marks if the
correct answer is chosen, and 0 marks otherwise. Assume that one
particular student answers the quiz by guessing, with a 1 in 5
chance of answering any single question correctly, independently of
all other questions.
Let X be the total number of marks
obtained by this student. The mean and standard deviation of
X are:

For each question on a multiple-choice test, there are five
possible answers, of which exactly one is correct. If a student
selects answers at random, give the probability that the first
question answered correctly is question 4.

A student has just been given a 10-question multiple-choice
quiz. Each question has five answers, of which only one is correct.
The student has not attended class recently, and doesn't know any
of the answers. Assume that guesses are made on all ten questions,
find the indicated probability. (Round your answer to three decimal
places.) What is the probability that the student will answer all
questions incorrectly?

In a statistics class, Maya takes a multiple-choice quiz. There
are 10 questions. Each question has five possible answers. Maya
will pass the test if she studies so that she has a 75% chance of
answering each question correctly. Let x be the number of of
correct answers. (Round probabilities to 4 decimal places)
a. Define the Random Variable, x ~
b. What is the PDF formula?
c. Find the probability that Maya answers exactly 4 of the
questions correctly?...

A quiz consists of 100 multiple choice questions. Each question
has 4 possible answers (A-D) and only one answer is correct. If the
student guesses the answer to the questions, then what is the

a) A student has just been given a 7-question multiple-choice
quiz in their anatomy class. Each question has five answers, of
which only one is correct. Since this student has not attended any
classes recently, they do not know any of the answers and must
guess on all 7 questions. What is the probability they will get at
least one question correct?
a. 0.7903
b. 0.8154
c. 0.3670
d. 0.1429

. A quiz has 25 multiple choice questions. Each
question has 3 possible answers, one of which is correct. A correct
answer is worth 4 points (a ticket with the value of 4), but a
point is taken off for each incorrect answer (a ticket with the
value of -1). A student answers all 25 questions by guessing at
random.
a) Present the problem with an appropriate box model.
Find the expected value and the standard error for the sum...

A quick quiz consists of a multiple-choice question with 6
possible answers followed by a multiple-choice question with 5
possible answers. If both questions are answered with random
guesses, find the probability that both responses are
correct.

Larry takes a multiple-choice test where for each question there
are five possible answers to choose from. If he guesses, he gets
the answer correct with probability 1/5. For any given question, he
knows the correct answer with probability 1/2. Given the
information that Larry got question one correct, what is the
probability he knew the correct answer to question one?
