1.  In a collage 10% of students speaking english, 70% speaking hindhi 10% speaking both. If a student selected at random, What is the probability of the students who speak english or hindhi?

9/5
10/7
7/10
5/7

```Answer

Answer: Option  C Explanation:P(a) = 10/100 = 1/10
P(b) = 70/100 = 7/10
P (both) = 10/100 = 1/10
P (a * b) = (1+7-1) /10 = 7/10 ```

2.  A box contains 10 black and 10 white marbles. The probability of drawing two marbles of the same colour is?

9/19
9/38
10/19
5/19

```Answer

Answer: Option  A Explanation:Total number of balls =20.
Let S be the sample space. Then,
n(S) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of 20 = 20C2 = (20*19)/(2*1) = 190
Let E = event of drawing 2 balls of the same colour
n(E) = (10C2 + 10C2) = 2*(10*9/2*1) = 90
Therefore  P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = 90/190 = 9/19 ```
