QUESTION: 3

### A fruit basket contains 10 Guavas and 20 Bananas out of which 3 Guavas and 5 Bananas are defective. If two fruits selected at random, what is the probability that either both are Bananas or both are non-defective?

Solution:

P(A) = 20c2 / 30c2, P(B) = 22c2 / 30c2
P(A∩B) = 15c2 / 30c2
P(A∪B) = P(A) + P(B) – P(A∩B) ⇒ (20c2/30c2)+(22c2/30c2)- (15c2/30c2)=316/435

QUESTION: 4

A committee of five persons is to be chosen from a group of 10 people. The probability that a certain married couple will either serve together or not at all is?
