Would you give somebody who got them all correct an A? Why would you do that? Because they knew the material well enough to answer all of the questions correctly. If they get them all wrong then it seems like they did in fact know the correct answer but they answered them all wrong on purpose. So they still knew the material well enough that they could have answered them all correct. Or maybe they thought they were answering them correctly but filled in the wrong circle on a scantron or something... It's silly but that does seem to be the implication.

I dont understand your last point. Maybe I'm not that far into stats to comprehend 1/2^50? You mean, 1/2^50 as the probability for getting each T/F question correct (or false)?

So if you used the independent argument, even though you know nothing about Binomial distribution, you can still come up with that answer.

Of course the statement "What is the probability of getting a consecutive 50 failures in 50 independent and identical trials ?" can be in general viewed as a Binomial distribution problem.

"What is the probability of getting a consecutive 50 failures in 50 independent and identical trials?" We need to provide the z-score
