On most SATs you can miss 4-5 questions on the verbal and 1-2 on the math and still receive a "perfect" score. Since the number you can miss is tied partially to the distribution that year, and the distribution will be quite low if everyone guessed, the number of missed problems allowed would be on the high end of the above range, or quite possible above it. So multiply his probabilities by at least a factor of 16000, though you still get 0.He’s wrong on the second one too (but probably not qualitatively).
