1.  A number X is chosen at random from the numbers 3, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 3. What is the probability that $X < 2$ 
A.  5/7  
B.  3/7  
C.  3/5  
D.  1/3 
 Answer – (B) Solution: X can take 7 values. ⇒ $P(X < 2) = \text" Favourable Cases"/\text"Total Cases"$ 
2.  Two brother X and Y appeared for an exam. The probability of selection of X is 1/7 and that of B is 2/9. Find the probability that both of them are selected. 
A.  1/63  
B.  2/35  
C.  2/63  
D.  9/14 
 Answer – (C) Solution: Let A be the event that X is selected and B is the event that Y is selected. $P(A)= 1/7, P(B) = 2/9$. Let C be the event that both are selected. $P(C)= P(A)×P(B)$ as A and B are independent events: 
3.  An urn contains 6red, 5 blue and 2 green marbles. If 2 marbles are picked at random, what is the probability that both are red? 
A.  6/13  
B.  5/26  
C.  5/13  
D.  7/26 
 Answer – (B) Solution: P(Both are red) $= {^6C_2}/{^13C_2}$ 
4.  Four dice are thrown simultaneously. Find the probability that all of them show the same face. 
A.  1/216  
B.  1/36  
C.  4/216  
D.  3/216 
 Answer – (A) Solution: The total number of elementary events associated to the random experiments of throwing four dice simultaneously is: Let X be the event that all dice show the same face. Hence required probability $= {n(X)}/{n(S)} = 6/{6^4}$ 
5.  A bag contains 12 white and 18 black balls. Two balls are drawn in succession without replacement. What is the probability that first is white and second is black? 
A.  18/145  
B.  18/29  
C.  36/135  
D.  36/145 
 Answer – (D) Solution: The probability that first ball is white: Since, the ball is not replaced; hence the number of balls left in bag is 29. Required probability $= (2/5) × (18/29)$
