E

if it is head 5 times probability is (0.6)^5 ; eliminate A, B,C -----------------I

now between D and E ,

5(0.6)^4(0.4) ; represent prob of head 4 times

if coin is tossed 5 times ,there are 5 different ways we can have exactly 4 heads and prob of tail exactly once would be 0.4 ,so we get 5(0.6)^4(0.4) --------------------------II

combining outcome of I and II we get E
