### Question 1

From a deck of 52 cards two cards are drawn at random. What is the probability that both one is a hearts, and the other a clubs?

**A**

${13/102}$.

**B**

$3/9$.

**C**

$14/102$.

**D**

$18/102$.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Number of ways of drawing 2 cards out of 52 = ^{52}C_{2} = $(52 × 51)/2$ = 1326. There are 13 hearts and 13 clubs in the deck. So 2 such cards can be drawn in 13 × 13 = 169 ways. The probability = 169/1326 = 13/102.

### Question 2

A bag contains 2 Red, 6 Blue and 3 Green marbles. What is the probability of drawing a Red marble if 2 marbles are drawn out randomly?

**A**

${19/55}$.

**B**

$3/11$.

**C**

$20/55$.

**D**

$24/55$.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Total number of marbles is 11. Combinations of 2 marbles that are possible = ^{11}C_{2} = ${11 × 10}/2$ = 55. If one of the two balls is red, then red + red is one possibility, and 2 × (6 + 3) are the other possibilities. So total favorable outcomes = 1 + 2 × 9 = 19, and the probability is 19/55 = ${19/55}$.

### Question 3

From a deck of 52 cards two cards are drawn at random. What is the probability that both will be "10"?

### Question 4
