Question

A multiple choice test consisting of 10 questions. each question has four choices. a,b,c, and d tell how you would find the probability of guessing at least one correct answer, without the use of binomial probability formula. what rule would your use to simplify your solution?

Answer #1

Each question has 4 choices out of which one is correct. The probability of correct answer is

p = 1/4 = 0.25

The probability that one answer is incorrect is

P(incorrect)= 1-p = 0.75

Let us first find the probability that out of 10, all 10 answers are incorrect. Since each question is independent from other so by the multiplication rule the probability that all questions are incorrect is

By the complement rule, the probability that at least one question is correct is

P(at least one correct) = 1 - 0.0563 = 0.9437

A multiple-choice test consists of 10 questions. Each question
has answer choices of a, b, c,
d, and e, and only one of the choices is correct.
If a student randomly guesses on each question, what is the
probability that he gets at most 1 of them correct?
Carry your intermediate computations to at least four decimal
places, and round your answer to at least two decimal places.

2. A multiple-choice test has 25 questions. There are four
choices for each question. A student who has not studied for the
test decides to answer all questions by randomly choosing one of
the four choices. What probability distribution can be used to
compute his chance of correctly answering at least 15
questions?
a. Normal distribution b. Binomial distribution c. Poisson
distribution d. None of these

A multiple-choice test consists of eight questions, each of
which has four choices. Each question has exactly one correct
answer.
William guesses randomly at each answer. What is the probability
that he gets six or fewer questions correct? (Round your answer to
four decimal places.)

A multiple-choice test has four questions, each with five
choices for the answer. Only one of the choices is correct. You
randomly guess the answer to each question. What is the probability
that you answered at least one questions correctly?
A. 0.5904
B.0.1808
C.0.216
D. 0.8192

A student takes a multiple-choice test that has 40 questions.
Each question has 5 choices. The
student did not study for the test and decides to randomly guess at
each question. (Hint: The
probability of guessing correctly is 0.2.) Round the probability to
four decimal places.

b) Calculate the mean.____________
c) Calculate the standard deviation._____________

A multiple-choice test consists of 7 questions. Each question
has answer choices of a, b, c, and d, and only one of the choices
is correct. If a student randomly guesses on each question, what is
the probability that he gets fewer than 2 of them correct?

You are taking a multiple choice test consisting of 16 questions
with 4 choices each,
a) What type of probability distribution is needed to solve the
problem? Explain.
b) What is the probability of getting an A?
c) What is the probability of getting a passing grade?
d) What is the probability of not passing (failing)?
e) What grade percentage can one expect to get from pure
guessing?

A
test contains 6 multiple-choice questions . Each question has one
correct answer to choose from 3 options. If you answer all 6
questions by guessing randomly , find the probability of getting at
least one question wrong.

A multiple-choice test consists of 25 questions, each with four
possible answers. If our desperate business statistics student
answers the test by guessing the answers before reading the
questions (that is, by selecting an answer at random for each
question), use the normal curve approximation to find the
probabilities that he will get:
exactly six correct answers (b) at least seven correct
answers
fewer than four correct answers (d) more than two, but fewer
than nine correct answers

A student takes a multiple choice test consisting of 5 questions
where there are 4 choices per question. Also, each question is
worth 20 points. Suppose the student guesses on each question. Let
X be the number of questions the student gets correct. The
probability distribution for X is given below. Find the variance of
X. Do not give units and give your answer to four decimal
places.
