I think Tillman worded his response quite nicely as it was obvious that the teacher who made the quiz is a Packers fan. We all know that that is the oldest rivalry in the NFL and it's good to see that it's still going strong. It makes for good Football IMO.
What say you?
BTW, I think the answers are 16% and 84 % respectively.edit on 18-6-2012 by Taupin Desciple because: (no reason given)

Some sort of sporting contest, I presume.
Let's see, the questions concern the Bears, whose baseline odds are given, indirectly, as the inverse of the Packers' 80%, so 20%. Those odds, spread over four games; 20%/4=0.2/4=0.05=5%. So you wouldn't want to bet on the Bears. (Unless these "Bears" are actual bears, in which case these odds need to be revisited. Unless "Packers" is slang for people packing firearms.)
Next, the odds for the bears winning one game in four would be 0.2*4=0.8=80%.
In addition, I'm totally putting on this hoity-toity attitude. I didn't even finish high school. If somebody came on and proved me wrong I would just think it was hilarious.
