I'm attaching the image with this. It seems that question is misprinted but lets say if any value like 0.6(by intuition) is given then what will be the approach to solve such type of questions.

If probability of moving right is also given , say p(r), then the swing will be at the same place, if the swing moves left and right equal no. of times=10/2 =5 . The answer should be $10C_5\times{p(r)}^5\times p(l)^5$

Sheldon Ross A first course in Probability
An urn contains 6 white and 9 black balls. If 4 balls are to be randomly selected without replacement, what is the probability that the first 2 selected are white and the last 2 black. I solved it in this manner : (6C2 * 9C2)/ (15C4)  getting 36 ... (6*5*9*8)/(15*14*13*12)  6/91 I cannot understand exactly why my approach is not working over here.
