Q:

A problem is given to three students whose chances of solving it are 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4 respectively. What is the probability that the problem will be solved?

A) 1/4 B) 1/2
C) 3/4 D) 7/12

Answer:   C) 3/4



Explanation:

Let A, B, C be the respective events of solving the problem and A , B, C be the respective events of not solving the problem. Then A, B, C are independent event

A, B, C are independent events

Now,  P(A) = 1/2 , P(B) = 1/3 and P(C)=1/4

 PA=12, PB=23, PC= 34

 P( none  solves the problem) = P(not A) and (not B) and (not C)  

                  = PABC 

                  = PAPBPC          A, B, C are Independent                       

                  =  12×23×34  

                  = 14  

Hence, P(the problem will be solved) = 1 - P(none solves the problem) 

                = 1-14= 3/4

Q:

In a bag which contains 40 balls, there are 18 red balls and some green and blue balls. If two balls are picked up from the bag without replacement, then the probability of the first ball being red and second being green is 3/26. Find the number of blue balls in the bag.

A) 16 B) 12
C) 10 D) 14
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 12

Explanation:

Total balls = 40

Red balls = 18

Let green balls are x

Then, (18/40) × (

Q:

A five digit number is formed with the digits 0,1,2,3 and 4 without repetition. Find the chance that the number is divisible by 5.

A) 3/5 B) 1/5
C) 2/5 D) 4/5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1/5

Explanation:
5 digit number = 5! = 120
Divisible by 5 then the last digit should be 0
Then the remaining position have the possibility = 4!
= 24

Q:

In a single throw with 2 dices, what is probability of neither getting an even number on one and nor a multiple of 3 on other?

A) 11/36 B) 25/36
C) 5/6 D) 1/6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 25/36

Explanation:

We first calculate the probability of getting an even number on one and a multiple of 3 on other,Here, n(s) = 6x6 = 36 and

E = (2,3) (2,6) (4,3) (4,6) (6,3) (6,6) (3,2) (3,4)(3,6) (6,2)(6,4)

n(E) = 11P(E) = 11/36Required probability = 1-11/36 = 25/36

Q:

A bag contains 2 red Roses, 4 yellow Roses and 6 pink Roses. Two roses are drawn at random. What is the probability that they are not of same color?

A) 1/6 B) 2/3
C) 14/33 D) 5/6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 2/3

Explanation:

Possible outcomes = (RY, YP, PR)

2C1 4C1 + 4C1 6C1 + 6C1 2C1

Required probability = (2C1 4C1 + 4C1 6C1 + 6C1 2C1)/(12C2)

= 8 + 24 + 12/66

= 44/66

= 2/3.

Q:

What is the probability that a number is divisible by 4?

A) 2 B) 1/2
C) 1/4 D) 1
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1/2

Explanation:

Probability is Number of favourable outcomes by total outcomes

Total comes = 2 (Divisible or not)

Favourable = 1 (Divisible)

 

Hence, probability = 1/2.

Q:

The probability that z lies between 0 and 3.01

A) 0.4987 B) 0.5
C) 0.9987 D) 0.1217
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 0.4987

Explanation:

Probability between z = 0 and z = 3.01 is given by

P(0<z<3.01) = P(z<3.01) - P(z<0)

Reading from the z-table, we have

P(z<0) = 0.5

P(z<3.01) = 0.9987

Hence, P(0<z<3.01) = 0.9987 - 0.5 = 0.4987.

Q:

There are 26 balls marked with alphabetical order A to Z. What is the probability of selecting vowels listed balls? 

A) 1 B) 21/26
C) 5/26 D) 5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 5/26

Explanation:

We know that,

Total number of balls n(S) = 26

Number of vowels n(E) = 5

Hence, required probability = n(E)/n(S) = 5/26.
