Q:

# A box contains 10 bulbs,of which just three are defective. If a random sample of five bulbs is drawn, find the probability that the sample contains exactly one defective bulb.

 A) 5/12 B) 7/12 C) 3/14 D) 1/12

Explanation:

Total number of elementary events = $10C5$

Number of ways of selecting exactly one defective bulb out of 3 and 4 non-defective out of 7 is $3C1*7C4$

So,required probability =$3C1*7C4$/$10C5$ = 5/12.
