When picking one correct number out of 99 numbers, the odds are 99 to 1.  If you have 10 tries to get 6 correct numbers, do the odds change?  Are the odds always 99 to 1 regardless how many tries you make?

yes it is because for in each case we picking up one number out of 99, so probability remain same 

every  tries is independent from each other .

it is just like a tossed coin in first trie it is either head or tail

in second time it is is remain same head or tail
