Work Step by Step

The probability of getting 1 or 3 is $1/4+1/4=1/2.$ The probability of getting 2 or 4 is $1/4+1/4=1/2.$ The probability of getting Forward is $1/2$. These spinners are independent, hence the probability of getting Forward followed by 1 or 3 followed by a 2 or 4 is the multiple of the three, which is $1/2\cdot1/2\cdot 1/2=1/8.$
