A. $\displaystyle \frac{180}{625}$
B. $\displaystyle \frac{612}{625}$
C. $\displaystyle \frac{216}{625}$
D. $\displaystyle \frac{228}{625}$
E. $\displaystyle \frac{230}{625}$

Binomial distribution with parameters $n=5,~p=\dfrac 3 5$

$P[3] = \dbinom{5}{3}\left(\dfrac 3 5\right)^3 \left(\dfrac 2 5\right)^2 = \dfrac{216}{625}$, i.e. choice (c)
