Since there is an equal probability of having a boy or a girl, Any possible combination of 4 children has a probability of 1/16. Now there are 4!/2!*2! ways of having exactly 2 boys and 2 girls... which is 6. So total probability of that event happening is 6*1/16 = 3/8 = A

The answer would not change for 2 boys and 1 girl

Which will be 3*1/8 = 3/8
