Hello, I tried to model and answer this question, but I didn't get success. Could someone help me ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question:

A California driver decides that he must switch lanes every minute to get ahead. If he is on 4-lane divided highway and does this at random, what is the probability that he is back on his original lane after 4 minutes (assuming no collision) ? [HINT: the answer depends on whether he starts on an outside or inside lane.]
