Here n= 5
p = probability of getting correct answer by giessing from 3 possible answers =\frac{1}{3}
q= 1-p= \frac{2}{3}
\therefore p\left ( x\geq 4 \right )= p\left ( x= 4 \right )+p\left ( x= 5 \right )
                          = \, ^{5}C_{4}\, p^{4}\, q^{5-4}+\, ^{5}C_{5}\,\, p^{5}\, q^{5-5}
                         = 5\times \left ( \frac{1}{3} \right )^{4}\times \left ( \frac{2}{3} \right )^{1}+1\times \left ( \frac{1}{3} \right )^{5}\left ( \frac{2}{3} \right )^{0}
                        = \frac{10}{243}+\frac{1}{243}= \frac{11}{243}
