Q:

# A basket contains 10 apples and 20 oranges out of which 3 apples and 5 oranges are defective. If we choose two fruits at random, what is the probability that either both are oranges or both are non defective?

 A) 136/345 B) 17/87 C) 316/435 D) 158/435

Explanation:

$ns=C230$

Let A be the event of getting two oranges and

B be the event of getting two non-defective fruits.

and $A∩B$ be the event of getting two non-defective oranges

$∴PA∪B=PA+PB-PA∩B$

$C220C230+C222C230-C215C230=316435$
