"As part of a probability experiment, Elliott is to answer 4 multiple-choice questions. For each question, there are 3 possible answers, only 1 of which is correct. If Elliott randomly and independently answers each question, what is the probability that he will answer the 4 questions correctly?"
Solving the question I keep getting 1/256. My reasoning is that each question has a 1/4 chance of being right if you guessed, so 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 = 1/256.
But my answer choices are as follows, with the correct answer being E:
Am I missing something? Or am I just completely solving this wrong?
