Expert Answer:

There are total 52 Cards. If one card i.e the queen of hearts is removed.

Then the Sample Space = 51

(1) Number of favouable outcomes ( A heart card) = 12    [since 1 heart card is removed out of total 13 heart cards]

Probability = 12/51 = 4/17

(2) Number of favouable outcomes ( Queen card) =3      [since 1 heart card is removed out of total 4 queen cards]

Probability = 3/51 = 1/17
