Question

A test has 5 multiple choice questions. Each question has 4 alternatives, only one of which is correct. A student who did not study for the test randomly chooses one alternative for each question.(a) What is the probability of him getting a zero on the test?(b) What is the probability of him getting a three or more? The maximum mark for the test is 5, with each question worth one point.
