# 100+ Probability Aptitude Questions and Answers - 1

Question: 1

In a simultaneous throw of a two dice, what is the probability of getting a doublet?

(A) $${1}/{2}$$

(B) $${1}/{4}$$

(C) $${1}/{6}$$

(D) $${2}/{3}$$

Ans: C

In a simultaneous throw of two dice, n(S) = (6 × 6) = 36.

Let E = event of getting a doublet = {(1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), (4, 4), (5,5), (6,6)}

∴ P(E) = $${n(E)} / {n(S)}$$ = $${6} / {36}$$ = $${1} /{6}$$.

Question: 2

One card is drawn at random from a pack of 52 cards. What is the probability that the card drawn is a face card?

(A) $${1} / {4}$$

(B) $${1} / {13}$$

(C) $${4} / {13}$$

(D) $${9} / {52}$$

Ans: C

Clearly, there are 52 cards, out of which there are 16 face cards.

∴ P (getting a face card) = $${16} / {52}$$ = $${4} / {13}$$.

Question: 3

A box contains 4 red, 5 green and 6 white balls. A ball is drawn at random from the box. What is the probability that the ball drawn is either red or green?

(A) $${1} / {5}$$

(B) $${2} / {5}$$

(C) $${3} / {5}$$

(D) $${7} / {15}$$

Ans: C

Total number of balls = (4 + 5 + 6) = 15.

P(drawing a red ball or a green ball)

= P(red) + P(green) = $$({4} /{15} + {5} /{15})$$ = $${9}/{15}$$ = $${3} / {5}$$.

Question: 4

Tickets numbered 1 to 20 are mixed up and then a ticket is drawn at random. What is the probability that the ticket drawn bears a number which is a multiple of 3?

(A) $${1}/{2}$$

(B) $${2}/{5}$$

(C) $${3}/{10}$$

(D) $${3}/{20}$$

Ans: C

Here, S = {1, 2, 3, 4, ……., 19, 20}.

Let E = event of getting a multiple of 3 = {3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18}.

∴ P (E) = $${n(E)} / {n(S)}$$ = $${6} / {20}$$ = $${3} /{10}$$.

Question: 5

A bag contains 6 black and 8 white balls. One ball is drawn at random. What is the probability that the ball drawn is white?

(A) $${1} / {8}$$

(B) $${3} / {4}$$

(C) $${3} / {7}$$

(D) $${4} / {7}$$

Ans: D

Total number of balls = (6 + 8) = 14.

Number of white balls = 8.

P(drawing a white ball) = $${8} /{14}$$ = $${4} / {7}$$.
