A) 3/4
B) 3/5
C) 1/3
D) 2/3
Correct Answer : 2/3 Explanation :Probability that the extracted ball is blue = 40/120 => 1/3 |

If seven coins are tossed, what is the probability of obtaining at least 2 heads ? |

A) 12/16
B) 15/16
C) 15/18
D) 15/20
Correct Answer : 15/16 Explanation :Probability of getting no head = Probability of getting at least 2 heads= 1 - 1/128 - 7/128 => 120/128 =>15/16 |

If one rolls a fair-sided die twice, what is the probability that the die will land on the same number on both the occasions ? |

A) 1/12
B) 1/6
C) 1/24
D) 1/8
Correct Answer : 1/6 Explanation :n(S), Total ways = 6∗6= 36 Required probability = n(E)/n(S) = 6 / 36 = 1/6 |

A die is thrown once. Find the probability of getting an even number? |

A) 3/4
B) 1/4
C) 1/2
D) 3/2
Correct Answer : 1/2 Explanation :Sample space is, S : {1,2,3,4,5,6} =6 Favorable outcomes,even numbers E : { 2,4,6 } = 3 P(getting an event number)=n(E)/n(S)=3/6=1/2 |

A card is drawn from a well-shuffled deck of 52 playing cards. Find the probability that it is not an ace? |

A) 1/13
B) 4/13
C) 3/13
D) 12/13
Correct Answer : 12/13 Explanation :total number of cards=52 The probability P(not getting an ace)=1 - P(getting an ace) |

A bag contains 24 eggs out of which 8 are rotten. The remaining eggs are not rotten eggs. The two eggs are selected at random. What is the probability that one of the eggs is rotten? |

A) 11/23 B) 17/23 C) 13/23 D) 19/23 Correct Answer : 13/23 Explanation :Number of total eggs = 24 Required probability = ( |

From a well-shuffled deck of 52 cards, one card is drawn at random. Find the probability of getting a face card? |

A) 1/13 B) 2/13 C) 3/13 D) 4/13 Correct Answer : 3/13 Explanation :Sample space is, S : 52 cards |

What is the probability that a number selected from the numbers 1, 2, 3,…….,25 is a prime number, when each of the given numbers is equally likely to be selected? |

A) 8/25 B) 9/25 C) 1/25 D) 2/25 Correct Answer : 9/25 Explanation :Let S be the sample space. Let E be the event space= event that the number selected is a prime number = {2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23} Probability of occurrence of event, P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = 9/25 |

A) 38.4%
B) 60%
C) 4.8%
D) 19.2%
Correct Answer : 19.2% Explanation :Probability of Mita failing = 100 - Probability of Mita passing The probability of Sita passing (60%), Gita passing (40%), and Mita failing (80%), combine with the formula |

An unbiased die is tossed.Find the probability of getting a multiple of 3? |

A) 1/2 B) 1/3
C) 1/4
D) 2/3 Correct Answer : 1/3 Explanation :Here we have sample space S={1,2,3,4,5,6} Let E be the event of getting a multiple of 3 then E={3,6} P(E) =n(E)/n(S) |

In a simultaneous throw of a pair of dice,find the probability of getting a total more than 7? |

A) 1/2 B) 5/12
C) 7/15
D) 3/12 Correct Answer : 5/12 Explanation :Here sample space n(S) =6*6 =36. |

A) 1/15 B) 2/15
C) 4/15
D) 7/15 Correct Answer : 7/15 Explanation :Let S be the sample space. Let E =event of getting both balls of the same colour. Required probability, P(E) =n(E)/n(S) =21/45 =7/15 |

A) 7/18 B) 14/35
C) 8/18
D) 7/35 Correct Answer : 7/18 Explanation :n(S) = 6*6 =36 Hence P(E) =n(E)/n(S) |

Two cards are drawn at random from a pack of 52 cards What is the probability that either both are black or both are queens? |

A) 52/221 B) 55/190
C) 55/221
D) 19/221 Correct Answer : 55/221 Explanation :total number of ways for choosing 2 cards from 52 cards is Let A= event of getting both black cards We have 26 black cards from that we have to choose 2 cards. In 52 cards we have 4 queens from that we have to choose 2 cards. from both case, we have to choose 2 black queens. P(A) = n(A) /n(S) =325/1326 |
