For each question. there are two equally likely possibilities, independent of other questions: either she knows the answer, in which case she answers the question correctly. or else she guesses the answer with probability of success 1/3. (a) Given that Nefeli answered correctly the first question, what is the probability that she knew the answer to that question? (b) Given that Nefeli answered correctly 6 out of the 10 questions, what is the posterior PMF of the number of questions of which she knew the answer?
