Among a group of 2500 people, 35 percent invest in municipal bonds, 18 percent invest in oil stocks, and 7 percent invest in both municipal bonds and oil stocks. If 1 person is to be randomly selected from 2500 people, what is the probability that the person selected will be one who invests in municipal bonds but not in oil stocks?

A7/25

B6/25

C1/25

DNone of these

Explanation:

Solution: 35% invests in municipal bonds.

It also includes 7% who invested in both municipal bonds and oil stocks.

So, 35-7 = 28% invests in municipal bonds but not in oil stocks

Therefore, probability = 28/100 = 7/25

7/25 is the probability of person only invest in municipal bonds.

A man can hit a target once in 3 shots.If he fires 3 shots in succession, find the probability that he will hit his target.

A2/9

B19/27

C5/9

D1/27

Explanation:

Probability of hitting the target = (1 - probability of not hitting the target)
if man hits once every 3 balls,
probability of hitting = 1/3 => probability of not hitting=2/3
So, probability of not hitting the target all three times = (2/3)* (2/3)* (2/3) = 8/27
=> Probability of hitting target = (1 - 8/27) = 19/27

At a car park there are 100 vehicles, 60 of which are cars, 30 are vans and the remaining are Lorries. If every vehicle is equally likely to leave, find the probability of car leaving second if either a lorry or van had left first :

A20/33

B23/33

C7/11

D23/33

Explanation:

Let S be the sample space and A be the event of a van leaving first. n(S) = 100 n (A) = 30
Probability of a van leaving first: P (A) = 30/100 = 3/10
Let B be the event of a lorry leaving first. n (B) = 100 - 60 - 30 = 10 Probability of a lorry leaving first: P (B) = 10/100 = 1/10
If either a lorry or van had left first, then there would be 99 vehicles remaining, 60 of which are cars.
Let T be the sample space and C be the event of a car leaving. n (T) = 99 n(C) = 60
Probability of a car leaving after a lorry or van has left: P(C) = 60/99 = 20/33

Four people each roll a fair dice once. Find the probability that at least two people will roll the same number?

A5/18

B13/18

C1295/1296

DNone of these

Explanation:

The number of ways of rolling a dice where no two numbers probability that no one rolls the same number = 6*5*4*3
Now total possibilities of rolling a dice = 64
The probability that a no one gets the same number = 6*5*4*3/64=5/18
So the probability that at least two people gets same number = 1?5/18=13/18
