Other Exercises

Question 1.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
We know that, the probability of an event E will always lie between O and 1, where O is the probability of an impossible event and 1 is the probability of a sure event.

Question 2.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
Let E be the event.
So, the probability of the event happening will be P(E).
Thus, the probability of the event not happening will be P(E’).
Given that, P(E)= p
We know that, P(E’)+ P(E)= 1
p + P(E’) = 1
=P(E’)= 1 – p

Question 3.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
The probability of an impossible event is always O.

Question 4.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
The probability of a sure event is always 1.

Question 5.
Solution:
Correct option: (a)
We know that, the probability of an event E will always lie between O and 1.
Since 1.5>1, it cannot be the probability of an event.

Question 6.
Solution:

Question 7.
Solution:

Question 8.
Solution:

Question 9.
Solution:

Question 10.
Solution:
Correct option: (d)
The total number of cards = 9
The primes numbers would be 2, 3, 5, 7, 11.
So, there are 5 numbers.
P(getting a prime number) = 5/9.

Question 11.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
The total number of tickets = 40
The multiples of 7 between 1 and 40 are 7, 14, 21, 28 and 35.
So, there are 5 numbers,
P(getting a multiple of 7) = 5/40 = 1/8.

Question 12.
Solution:
Correct option: (d)
We know that, the probability of an event E will always lie between O and 1.
Since 7/6 >1, it cannot be the probability of an event.

Question 13.
Solution:

Question 14.
Solution:
Correct option: (d)
An event that cannot occur is called an impossible event.
The probability of an impossible event is 0.

Question 15.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
The total number of tickets = 20
The multiples of 5 between 1 and 20 are 5, 10, 15 and 20.
So, there are 4 numbers.
P(getting a multiple of 5) = 4/20 = 1/5.

Question 16.
Solution:

Question 17.
Solution:
Correct option: (d)
The total number of bckets = 10
The numbers less than 10 are 6, 7, 8 and 9.
So, there are 4 numbers.
P(getting a number less than 10) = 2/5.

Question 18.
Solution:
Correct option: (a)
The numbers on a die are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
So, there are 6 numbers in total.
The even numbers on the die are 2, 4 and 6.
So, there are 3 numbers.
P(getting an even number) = 3/6 = 1/2.

Question 19.
Solution:
Correct option: (d)
The numbers on a fair die are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
So, there are 6 numbers in total.
The numbers greater than 2 are 3, 4, 5 and 6.
So, there are 4 numbers.
P(getting a number greater than 2) = 4/6 = 2/3.

Question 20.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
The numbers on a die are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
So, there are 6 numbers in total.
The odd number on a die greater than 3 is 5.
So, there is only 1 number.
P(getting an odd number greater than 3) = 1/6.

Question 21.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
The numbers on a die are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
So, there are 6 numbers in total.
The prime numbers on the die are 2, 3 and 5.
So, there are 3 numbers.
P(getting a prime number on the die) = 3/6 = 1/2.

Question 22.
Solution:

Question 23.
Solution:
Correct option: (d)
When two coins are tossed the outcomes are:
{HH, HT, TH, TT}
So, there are 4 numbers in total.

Question 24.
Solution:

Question 25.
Solution:
Correct option: (d)
When two coins are tossed the simultaneously the outcomes are:
{HH, HT, TH, TT}
So, there are 4 outcomes.
Getting atmost one head means the possible outcomes are:
{HT, TH, TT}
So, there are 3 possible outcomes.
P(getting atmost one head) = 3/4.

Question 26.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
When three coins are tossed the simultaneously the
outcomes are:
{HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, THT, HTT, TTH and TTT}
So, there are 8 possible outcomes.
P(getting exactly two heads) = 3/8.

Question 27.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
The number of prizes = 8
The number of blanks = 16
So, the total number of tickets=8+ 16 = 24
P(getting a prize) = 8/24 = 1/3.

Question 28.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
The number of prizes= 6
The number of blanks = 24
So, the total number of tickets = 6+24=30
P(not getting a prize)= 24/30 = 4/5.

Question 29.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
The bag contains 3 blue, 2 white and 4 red marbles.
So, the total number of marbles = 3+2+4= 9
Since the marbles cannot be white, it can blue or red.
The number of blue or red marbles= 3+4=7
P(getting a blue or red marble)= 7/9.

Question 30.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
The bag contains 4 red and 6 black balls.
So, the total number of balls= 4+6= 10
The number of black balls = 6
P(getting a black ball) = 6/10 = 3/5.

Question 31.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
The bag contains 8 red, 2 black and 5 white balls,
So, the total number of balls= 8+2+5=15
Since the ball should not be black, it can be red or white.
The number of red and white balls = 13
P(getting a red and white ball) = 13/15.

Question 32.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
The bag contains 3 white, 4 red and 5 black balls.
So, the total number of balls = 3+ 4+ 5= 12
For the ball that is drawn to be neither black nor white, it should be red.
The number of red balls = 4
P(getting a red ball) = 4/12 = 1/3.

Question 33.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
The total number of cards = 52
The number of black kings = 2
P(getting a black king) = 2/52 = 1/26.

Question 34.
Solution:
Correct option: (a)
The total number of cards = 52
The number of queens = 4
P(getting a queen) = 4/52 = 1/13.

Question 35.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
The total number of cards = 52
The number of face cards = 12
P(getting a face card) = 12/ 52 = 3/13.

Question 36.
Solution:
Correct option: (b)
The total number of cards = 52
The number of black face cards = 6
P(getting a black face card) = 6/52 = 3/26.

Question 37.
Solution:
Correct option: (c)
The total number of cards = 52
The number of 6 in the deck of cards = 4
P(getting a 6) = 4/52 = 1/13.
