I am not exactly sure if this is the complete question. Single option correct questions have 5 options to choose from in the GRE.

Probability of event F= $$P(F)=\frac{1}{4}$$

Probability of event G= $$P(G)=\frac{3}{5}$$

Since nothing is mentioned if the events are independent or not we can write= P(F) and P(G)=$$P(F) \times P(G)=\frac{1}{4} \times \frac{3}{5}=\frac{3}{20}$$.
