Q:

# Two brother X and Y appeared for an exam. The probability of selection of X is 1/7 and that of B is 2/9. Find the probability that both of them are selected.

 A) 1/63 B) 1/14 C) 2/63 D) 1/9

Explanation:

Let A be the event that X is selected and B is the event that Y is selected.

P(A) = 1/7,  P(B) = 2/9.

Let C be the event that both are selected.

P(C) = P(A) × P(B) as A and B are independent events:

= (1/7) × (2/9)  = 2/63
