    its definately greater than 0%.

    There's a (0.25)exp144 (1 out of 4 to the 144th power) chance of randomly guessing every question correctly given that there are four choices per question and 144 questions.

    Randomly striking the keyboard to generate a T on the essay would be an impressive feat as well, as long as you're proposing the unrealistic.

      I knew you would have the exact probability, given your recent "longest answer guess" experiment. :D
