Expert Answer:

Let A be the probability of selecting an employee with salary more than Rs. 20000.
 
Let B be the probability of selecting an employee who are tea drinkers.
 
Both these events are independent events.
 
Number of employees in the organization = 250
 
Number of employees whose salary greater than Rs. 20000 is 55.
 
Number of tea drinkers = 150
 
Number of employees whose salary is more than Rs.20000 and are tea drinkers = 30
 
Thus the probability of selecting an employee who is a tea drinker and salary more than Rs.20000
is P open parentheses A intersection B close parentheses equals 30 over 250
