a) 9/13
b) 2/3
c) 4/13
d) 7/15

View Answer

c) 4/13

Q5. The probability that a man will be alive in 20 years is 3 / 5 and the probability that his wife will be alive in 20 years is 2 / 3. Then what is the probability that at least one will be alive in 20 years?
a) 7 / 15
b) 13 / 15
c) 13 / 17
d) 7 / 13

View Answer

b) 13 / 15

Let A be the event that the husband will be alive in 20 years and B be the event that the wife will be alive in 20 years. Clearly A and B are independent events.

P (A ∩ B) = P (A) * P (B)

Given P (A) = 3 / 5, P (B) = 2 / 3

The probability that at least of them will be alive in 20 years is

P (A ∪ B) = P (A) + P (B) − P (A ∩ B) = P (A) + P (B) − P (A) P (B)

= 3 / 5 + 2 / 3 − [3 / 5] * [2 / 3]

= [9 + 10 − 6] / [15]

= 13 / 15

Q6. If A and B are two independent events such that P (A ∩ B′) = 3 / 25 and P (A′ ∩ B) = 8 / 25, then P (A) = _______.
a) 1/5 and 3/5
b) 2/5 and 4/5
c) 3/5 and 4/7
d) None of these

View Answer

a) 1/5 and 3/5

Since events are independent.

So, P (A ∩ B′) = P (A) × P (B′) = 3 / 25

⇒ P (A) × {1 − 2 P (B)} = 3 / 25 ….(i)

Similarly, P (B) × {1 − P (A)} = 8 / 25 ….(ii)

On solving (i) and (ii), we get

P (A) = 1/5 and 3/5

Q7. The probabilities that A and B will die within a year are p and q respectively, then the probability that only one of them will be alive at the end of the year is __________.
a) p – q − 4pq
b) – p + q − 4pq
c) p – q + 2pq
d) p + q − 2pq

View Answer

  d) p + q − 2pq

Solution:

Required probability is P [(A will die and B alive) or (B will die and A alive)]

= P [(A ∩ B′) ∪ (B ∩ A′)]

Since events are independent, so

Required probability= P (A) * P (B′) + P (B) * P (A′)

= p * (1 − q) + q * (1 − p)

= p + q − 2pq

Q8. Three ships A, B and C sail from England to India. If the ratio of their arriving safely are 2:5, 3:7 and 6:11 respectively then the probability of all the ships arriving safely is ________.
a) 18 / 595
b) 18 / 695
c) 44 / 595
d) 28 / 595

View Answer

a) 18 / 595

Solution:

We have the ratio of the ships A, B and C for arriving safely to be 2:5, 3:7 and 6:11 respectively. The probability of ship A for arriving safely = 2 / [2 + 5] = 2 / 7

Similarly, for B = 3 / [3 + 7] = 3 / 10 and for C = 6 / [6 + 11] = 6 / 17 Probability of all the ships for arriving safely = 2 / 7 × 3 / 10 × 6 / 17 = 18 / 595.

Q9. One coin is thrown 100 times. What is the probability of getting a tail as an odd number?
a) 1/4
b) 3/4
c) 1/3
d) 1/2

View Answer

d) 1/2

Solution:

Let p = Probability of getting tail = 1 / 2

q = Probability of getting head = 1 / 2

Also, p + q = 1 and n = 100

Required probability = P (X = 1) + P (X = 3) +….. + P (X = 99)

100C1 * p * q99 + 100C3 * p3 * q97 +……..+ 100C99 * p99 * q1

= [(p + q)100 − (p − q)100] / [2]

= 1 / 2.

Q10. A bag contains 2 white and 4 black balls. A ball is drawn 5 times with replacement. The probability that at least 4 of the balls drawn are white is ________.
a) 11 / 81
b) 11 / 243
c) 11 / 27
d) 11 / 729

View Answer

b) 11 / 243

Solution:

Probability for white ball = 2 / 6 = 1 / 3

Probability for black ball = 4 / 6 = 2 / 3

Required probability = 5C5 * (1 / 3)5 * (2 / 3)0 + 5C4 * (1 / 3)4 * (2 / 3)

= (1/ 3)[(1 / 3) + [5] * [2 / 3]]

= 11 / 35

= 11 / 243
