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: Option A
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.

2. A bag contains 2 red, 3 green and 2 blue balls. Two balls are drawn at random. What is the probability that none of the balls drawn is blue?
Answer: Option A
Explanation:Answer: 10/21
Solution: 2 red, 3 green, and 2 blue balls are there. So the probability of getting no blue ball is not selecting any blue ball among the two chosen balls hence 5C2.
5C2/7C2 = 10/21.
7C2 because we can select any 2 balls from 7 balls in that number of ways.

6. For the FIFA world cup, Paul the octopus has been predicting the winner of each match with amazing success. It is rumored that in a match between 2 teams A and B, Paul picks A with the same probability as A's chances of winning. Let's assume such rumors to be true and that in a match between Ghana and Bolivia, Ghana the stronger team has a probability of 2/3 of winning the game. What is the probability that Paul will correctly pick the winner of the Ghana-Bolivia game?
Answer: Option C
Explanation:Answer: 5/9
Solution: Answer is 5/9 because for example
Let Paul picks Ghana then probability that its prophecy will be true is 2/3*2/3 =4/9.
Now it may pick up Bolivia and the chances of winning are 1/3*1/3=1/9
So total probability will be 4/9 1/9=5/9

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: Option D
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: Option C
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
