    Hi Sagarmte,
    Presumably you have a random sample X_1, X_2, ... X_100 from a Bernoulli trials population (0 for failure; i.e. good item and 1 for success - bad item). The parameter is p = .4. Don't you then know the distribution of X_1+X_2+ ... X_100? Assuming you do, you can then answer your questions using this distribution.
