1. In a class, there are 15 boys and 10 girls. Three students are selected at random. The probability that 1 girl and 2 boys are selected, is:

Answer: 21/46

Explanation:

Let's assume the sample space = S
and Event of selecting 1 girl and 2 boys = E

So, n(S) = Number ways of selecting 3 students out of 25 = 25C3
=> (25 * 24 * 23)/(3 * 2 * 1) = 2300.
n(E) = (10C1 * 15C2)
= 10 * [(15 * 14)/(2 * 1)] = 1050.
P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = 1050/2300 = 21/46.

9. A 5-digit number is formed by the digits 2,4,5,6,8 (each digit used exactly once) . What is the probability that the number formed is divisible by 4 ?

Answer: 2/5

Explanation:

A no. is divisible by 4 if last two digit is divisible by 4
so numbers ending with 24,28,48,52,56,64,68,84 are divisible by 4
last two places are fixed by 24,28,48,52,56,64,68,84
so remaining 3 places can be filled in 3! ways for each
total=8*3!=48=n(E)
n(S) = 5!
so
= n(E)/n(S)
=48/120=2/5

10. A group consists of equal number of men and women. Of them 10% of men and 45% of women are unemployed. If a person is randomly selected from the group. Find the probability for the selected person to be an employee.

Answer: 29/40

Explanation:

Lets assume men=100, women=100 then employed men & women = (100-10)+(100-45) = 145
So probability for the selected person to be an employee = (145/200) = 29/40
