(i) The probability of an impossible event is **zero**.

(ii) The probability of a sure event is **one**.

(iii) For any event E, P(E) + P(not E)= **one** .

(iv) The probability of a possible but not a sure event lies between **zero** and **one**.

(v) The sum of probabilities of all the outcomes of an experiment is **one**.

In a throw of a dice, all possible outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Total number of possible outcomes = 6

(i)Let E be event of getting even number

Then, the favorable outcomes are 2, 4, 6

Number of favorable outcomes= 3

P(getting a even number)= P(E) =

(ii)Let R be the number less than 5

Then, the favorable outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4

Number of favorable outcomes = 4

P(getting a number less than 5)= P(R) =

(iii)Let M be the event of getting a number greater than 2

Then, the favorable outcomes are 3, 4, 5, 6

Number of favorableoutcomes = 4

P(getting a number greater than 2)= P(M)

(iv)Let N be the number lying between 3 and 6

Then the favorable outcomes are 4, 5

Number of favorable outcomes = 2

P(getting a number 3 and 6)= P(N) =

(v)Let G be event of getting a number other than 3

Then the favorable outcomes are 1, 2, 4, 5, 6

Number of favorable outcomes = 5

P(getting a number other than 5)=P(G) =

(vi)Let T be event of getting a number 5

Then the favorable outcome is 5

Number of favorable outcomes = 1

P(getting a number 5)=P(T)

Total number of tickets sold = 250

Number of prizes = 5

Let E be the event getting a prize

Number of favorable outcomes = 5

P(getting a prize) =

Spinning arrow may come to rest at one of the 12 numbers

total number of outcomes = 12

(i)Probability that it will point at 6 =

(ii)Even numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12. There are 6 numbers.

Probability that it points at even numbers =

(iii)The prime numbers are 2,3 5, 7 and 11. There are 5 prime numbers.

Probability that it points at prime number =

(iv)There are 2 numbers divisible by 5. These are 5 and 10.

Probability that a number is a multiple of 5 =

Total number of tickets = 100

(i)Even numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 62, 64, 66, 68, 70, 72, 74, 76, 78, 80, 82, 84, 86, 88, 90, 92, 94, 96, 98, 100

Total number of even number = 50

P(getting a even number) =

(ii)Numbers less than 16 are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15

Total number of numbers less than 16 is 14

P(getting a number less than 16) =

(iii)Numbers which are perfect square are 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100

Total number of perfect squares = 9

P(getting a perfect square) =

(iv)Prime numbers less than 40 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37

Total number of prime numbers =12

P(getting a prime number less 40) =

There are 26 red cards containing a 2 queensand 2 more black queens are there in a pack of cards

P(getting a red card or a queen)

P(getting neither a red card nor a queen) =

Total number of cards = 52

(i)There are 13 cards of spade (including 1 ace) and 3 more ace cards are there in a pack of cards

P(getting a card of spades or an ace) =

(ii)There are 2 red kings in a pack of cards

P(getting a red king) =

(iii)There are 4 kings and 4 queens in a pack of cards

P(getting either a king or a queen) =

(iv)P(getting neither a king nor a queen) =
