Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

there are 12 men and 8 women and in total they are 20.

probability of 1 man =1/12

probability of 5 men=(1/12)+(1/12)+(1/12)+(1/12)+(1/12)

                                =5/12=0.4166

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
