So remember, P(Megan|Lion) and P(Sky|Lion) take place here: Megan or Sky or both are walking in their outdoor clothes, the ones Megan feels confident in, Sky self-conscious, taking a break from the other to remind themselves that the world can be so different. Either one sees or both see a lion. From here, the probability that either will get eaten is .2 (Meg) or .6 (Sky). But the P of even being encountered with a lion is .1, or 10%. So the entire probability of the entire situation is P(Sky|Lion) or P(Meg|Lion) multiplied by .1.
