In order for a tsunami caused by a seaquakes to occur, following things have to happen:
1: The Earthquake must measure at least 7,0 on the Richter scale.

2: The sea bed must be lifted or lowered by the earthquake. If the sea bed is displaced sidewards, no tsunami will occur .

 So, If the tsunami has occured then earthquake would have definitely occured.

 Therefore, required probability=1
