Abhishek has 9 pairs of dark blue socks and 9 pairs of black socks. He keeps them all in the same bag. If he picks out three socks at random, then what is the probability that he will get a matching pair?




$\dfrac{2\times ^9C_2\times ^9C_1}{{18}^C_3}$


$\dfrac{ ^9C_3\times ^9C_1}{{18}^C_3}$


None of these

Option(A) is correct

If he draws any combination of 3 socks he will definitely have the matching pair of either colour.

Won't there any question of only left and right forming a pair of socks?
