#### Solution

Total number of possible outcomes=5xx5=25

The possible outcomes are :

MM,MT,MW,MTh,MF,TM,TT,TW,TTh,TF,WM,WT,WW,WTh,WF,ThM,ThT,ThM,ThT,Thw,ThTh,THF,FM,FT,FW,FTh,FF

Favorable outcomes for two employee remaining absent on consecutive days : MT,TM,TW,WT,WTh,ThW,ThF,FTh

Number of favorable outcomes =8
