As I understand your question: You have 2 multple choice questions with 6 possible answers each.
Since these are two independent events (unlike a matching test, where each answer further restricts the answers of following questions) you have a 1 in 6 chance of getting each question correct.
To calculate the chance that BOTH would be correct you mulitple the probability.
1/6 * 1/6 = 1/36 or 0.02778 or 2.778% chance
