Hm......sounds like a reading error to me...
if they said 3/18 doesn't that imply that the student KNEW that there were THREE outfits? The fact that they stated extra information...that is there were 3 out of 18 (3/18) doesn't mean they didn't understand the concept of how many...clearly, they did if they got a 3 in their answer.

We gave 2 points - thought it was a conceptual error to write a probability instead of how many

Question 38...What would give (2 points or 3 points)the question if the student got the correct sample space but wrote the two anwers of 3 and 12 as probabilities (3/18 and 12/18)?
