Answer:No, it does not

Step-by-step explanation:The

binomial distributionis used when the variable has only two possible outcomes, and each trial is independent of each other.In this question:For each student, yes, there are only two possible outcomes. Either their last names have more than six letters, or it does not.

However, as you pick, the names are not returned to the hat, so the probabilities change, which means that the trials are not independent, and we do not have a binomial distribution.
