Coul you explain me the way to get the final result.

My approach
Total ways to get 1 correct: 5C1*3*2*1 = 30
Total ways to get 2 correct: 5C2*2*1 = 20
Total ways to get 3 correct: 5C3*1*1 = 10
Total ways to get 4 correct: 0
Total ways to get 5 coeect: 1

Total ways to choose 5!= 120

then the total way to have 0 correct is 120 - 61 = 59
Coul anyone explain for me is there any problem in my approach ?
