There are three possibilities to select 3 people :
(1) 1 is a specialist, 2 are non-specialists (X=1).

(2) 2 are specialists, 1 is non-specialist (X=2).
(3) all 3 are specialists (X=3).

Also, not that X=0 is not a possibility as there can't be a case that all 3 selected are non-specialists, as there are only 2 non-specialists. So, the probability distribution of specialists is as follows:-

P(X=0)=0
P(X=1)=68×12×11=38
P(X=2)=68×57×12=1556
P(X=3)=68×57×46=514
