probability – Can someone please help me with this question? The wording is confusing me, more so is it binomial or hypergeometric distribution?

There are 158 school sites in our board (elementary and secondary). As of yesterday, 11 of those facilities
were closed and transitioned to remote learning due to struggles related to the COVID-19 pandemic. If we
use our five feeder schools and Loyola CSS as our local group (6 sites in total) …

i) … what is the probability that at least three of the sites in our local group move to remote learning
(we aren’t … but answer the question anyway!)

ii) Justify your selection of either the hypergeometric distribution or the binomial distribution in your
solution.

iii) How many schools would we expect to transition to remote learning (in our local group)? Perform
the calculation.

iv) Explain why you arrive at the same answer (for iii) despite using the either the hypergeometric
distribution or the binomial distribution models.
