I've been pondering on this question for a while. I wonder if there's not any error in the answer choices.
# of ways to form a team when P+M are in the team: 11C1 * 15C1 = 165
# of ways to form a team of 2 boys+2 girls: 12C2*16C2 = 7920
Prob. of forming a team with both P+M: 165/7920 = 1/48

Hallo guys, the official answer is 11C1x15C1/28C4 or 5). I also got 1/48, may be the answer is incorrect.

It can't be 28C4 because this would mean that the team could be form of 4 people of ANY gender. We need to isolate boys and girls apart with 12C2*16C2 as denominator
