Hello everyone, I found this problem online about probability, for me, I think that to have a 2 letter palindrome is less likely because we need to have the same letter in the 2 places which gives us 26 possibilities (aa , bb, cc ....) however for words with 3 letters we have 26 possibilities for the first and the last letter times 26 possibilities for the letter in the middle (aaa,aba,aca....) unfortunately my answer is wrong, can anyone tell me where is the mistake in my reasoning?

thanks!
