The total number of possible choices is 4^100

I'm not quite sure what the rest of the question is asking?

-----------------------------------------------------

answer = 4C1 * (100P1.4^1 + 100P2.(4^2)+100P3.(4^3).....+100P100.4^100 ) ??

if the order of the questions is fixed like in multiple choice, then replace P(permutations) by C(combinations)..this Q sounds more like P.

what is the OA ?
