A) 23/42 | B) 19/42 |

C) 7/32 | D) 16/39 |

Explanation:

A red ball can be drawn in two mutually exclusive ways

(i) Selecting bag I and then drawing a red ball from it.

(ii) Selecting bag II and then drawing a red ball from it.

Let E1, E2 and A denote the events defined as follows:

E1 = selecting bag I,

E2 = selecting bag II

A = drawing a red ball

Since one of the two bags is selected randomly, therefore

P(E1) = 1/2 and P(E2) = 1/2

Now, = Probability of drawing a red ball when the first bag has been selected = 4/7

= Probability of drawing a red ball when the second bag has been selected = 2/6

Using the law of total probability, we have

P(red ball) = P(A) =

=

A) 1/36 | B) 5/36 |

C) 1/12 | D) 1/9 |

Explanation:

The two events mentioned are independent.

The first roll of the die is independent of the second roll. Therefore the probabilities can be directly multiplied.

P(getting first 4) = 1/6

P(no second 6) = 5/6

Therefore P(getting first 4 and no second 6) = 1/6 x 5/6 = 5/36

A) TRUE | B) FALSE |

Explanation:

These two events cannot be disjoint because P(K) + P(L) > 1.

P(AꓴB) = P(A) + P(B) - P(AꓵB).

An event is disjoint if P(A ꓵ B) = 0. If K and L are disjoint P(K ꓴ L) = 0.8 + 0.6 = 1.4

And Since probability cannot be greater than 1, these two mentioned events cannot be disjoint.

A) 1/7 | B) 2/7 |

C) 1/2 | D) 3/2 |

Explanation:

A leap year has 52 weeks and two days

Total number of cases = 7

Number of favourable cases = 1

i.e., {Friday, Saturday}

Required Probability = 1/7

A) 16/19 | B) 1 |

C) 3/2 | D) 17/20 |

Explanation:

n(S) = 20

n(Even no) = 10 = n(E)

n(Prime no) = 8 = n(P)

P(E U P) = 10/20 + 8/20 - 1/20 = 17/20

A) 3/2 | B) 2/3 |

C) 1/2 | D) 34/7 |

Explanation:

The number of exhaustive events = 100 C₁ = 100.

We have 25 primes from 1 to 100.

Number of favourable cases are 75.

Required probability = 75/50 = 3/2.
