If anyone has any idea how to arrive at these answers please respond. I have been stuck on these for 2 days now.

2. 1) Use binomial distribution. Just remember that you have to account for all the possible orderings of the correct and wrong answers.

2) not sure about this...though i was thinking of how to distribute 9 balls into 2 groups of urns, such that one group will always have 4 balls and the other group 5 balls.
