Expert Answer:

Total number of cards = 52

Cards removed = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8

Remaining number of cards = 52 - 8 = 44

(i) Number of black queens = 2

Required probability =

(ii) Number of red cards left = 26 - 8 = 18

Required probability =

(iii) Number of black jacks = 2

Required probability =

(iv) Number of picture cards left = 2 + 2 + 2 = 6

Required probability =
