Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 1

A bag contains 5 red and 7 white balls. Four balls are drawn out one by one and not replaced. What is the probability that they are alternatively of different colours?

Detailed Solution for Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 1

Balls are picked in two manners – RWRW or WRWR
So probability = (5/12)*(7/11)*(4/10)*(6/9) + (7/12)*(5/11)*(6/10)*(4/9) = 14/99

Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 2

P and Q are sitting in a ring with 11 other persons. If the arrangement of 11 persons is at random, then the probability that there are exactly 4 persons between them?

Detailed Solution for Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 2

Fix the position of P, then Q can be sit in 12 positions, so total possible outcome = 12
Now, exactly 4 persons are sitting between them. This can be done in two ways as
shown in figure, so favourable outcomes = 2
So, probability = 2/12 = 1/6

Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 3

10 persons are seated around a round table. What is the probability that 4 particular persons are always seated together?

Detailed Solution for Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 3

Total outcomes = (10 -1)! = 9!
Favourable outcomes = 6!*4! (4 person seated together and 6 other persons seated randomly, so they will sit in (7-1)! Ways and those 4 persons can be arranged in 4! ways)
So probability = 1/21

Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 4

A box contains 4 red, 5 black and 6 green balls. 3 balls are drawn at random. What is the probability that all the balls are of same colour?

Detailed Solution for Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 4

(4c3 + 5c3 + 6c3)/15c3 = 34/455

Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 5

An apartment has 8 floors. An elevator starts with 4 passengers and stops at 8 floors of the apartment. What is the probability that all passengers travels to different floors?

Detailed Solution for Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 5

Total outcomes = 8*8*8*8
Favourable outcomes = 8*7*6*5 (first person having 8 choices, after that second person have 7 choices and so on)
So, probability = 105/256

Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 6

A speaks truth in 60% of the cases and B in 80% of the cases. In what  percentage of cases are they likely to contradict each other, narrating the same incident?

Detailed Solution for Probability - MCQ 2 - Question 6

Let  A = Event that A speaks the truth

and B= Event  that B speaks the truth. 

                

Then,  P ( A)  = 60/ 100 = ⅗ 

            P ( B)  = 80/ 100 =  ⅘ 

             _    

:-     P  ( A) =  ( 1- ⅗  )  = 2 / 5 

             _         

        P ( B )  = (1 - 4 /5 ) =  1 / 5

        P ( A and B  contradict each other) 

      = P [ ( A speaks truth and B tells a lie) or 

              ( A tells the lie and B speaks the truth) ]

                              _         _

       =  P [ ( A and B)  or (  A  and  B)]

                            _              _

         = P ( A and B)  +    P ( A  and B) 

                               _                _

         =  P (A) *  P ( B)  +     P ( A) *  P ( B) 

 

          =  (  3 / 5 * 1 / 5 ) +      ( 2 / 5 * 4 / 5 ) 

           =  3 / 25 + 8 / 25 

           =  11 / 25 

            = [ 11/ 25 * 100 ] % 

             

             =  44%

P = (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/2) + (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/2) + (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/2) + (1/2)*(1/2)*(1/2)
=4/8 = ½
