Suppose a fair sixsided die is rolled once. If the value on the die is 1, 2, or 3, the die is rolled a second time. What is the probability that the sum total of values that turn up is at least 6?
Box P has 2 red balls and 3 blue balls and box Q has 3 red balls and 1 blue ball. A ball is selected as follows:
(i) select a box
(ii) choose a ball from the selected box such that each ball in the box is equally likely to be chosen. The probabilities of selecting boxes P and Q are 1/3 and 2/3 respectively. Given that a ball selected in the above process is a red ball, the probability that it came from the box P is:

10% of all email you receive is spam. Your spam filter is 90% reliable: that is, 90% of the mails it marks as spam are indeed spam and 90% of spam mails are correctly labelled as spam. If you see a mail marked spam by your filter, what is the probability that it really is spam?
When a coin is tossed, the probability of getting a Head is . Let be the random variable denoting the number of tosses till the first Head appears, including the toss where the Head appears. Assuming that successive tosses are independent, the expected value of N is
For each element in a set of size 2n, an unbiased coin is tossed. The 2n coin tosses are independent. An element is chosen if the corresponding coin toss was a head. The probability that exactly n elements are chosen is
Suppose three coins are lying on a table, two of them with heads facing up and one with tails facing up. One coin is chosen at random and flipped. What is the probability that after the flip the majority of the coins(i.e., at least two of them) will have heads facing up?
A random bit string of length n is constructed by tossing a fair coin n times and setting a bit to 0 or 1 depending on outcomes head and tail, respectively. The probability that two such randomly generated strings are not identical is:
Karan tells truth with probability 1/3 and lies with probability 2/3. Independently, Arjun tells truth with probability 3/4 and lies with probability 1/4. Both watch a cricket match. Arjun tells you that India won, Karan tells you that India lost. What probability will you assign to India's win?
Suppose that a shop has an equal number of LED bulbs of two different types. The probability of an LED bulb lasting more than hours given that it is of Type 0.7 is , and given that it is of Type 2 is 0.4. The probability that an LED bulb chosen uniformly at random lasts more than 100 hours is _________.
P and Q are considering to apply for a job. The probability that P applies for the job is 1/4, the probability that P applies for the job given that Q applies for the job is 1/2., and the probability that Q applies for the job given that P applies for the job is 1/3. Then the probability that P does not apply for the job given that Q does not apply for this job is
Let A and B be any two arbitrary events, then, which one of the following is true?
Each of the nine words in the sentence " The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is written on a separate piece of paper. These nine pieces of paper are kept in a box. One of the pieces is drawn at random from the box. The length of the word drawn is _____________. (The answer should be rounded to one decimal place.)
An examination paper has 150 multiple choice questions of one mark each, with each question having four choices. Each incorrect answer fetches 0.25 marks. Suppose 1000 students choose all their answers randomly with uniform probability.The sum total of the expected marks obtained by all these students is
Assume that you are flipping a fair coin, i.e. probability of heads or tails is equal. Then the expected number of coin flips required to obtain two consecutive heads for the first time is.
A bag contains balls of the following colors: 8 red, 4 blue, 2 green, 1 black, and 1 white. Anisha picks a ball randomly from the bag, and messages Babu its color using a string of zeros and ones. She replaces the ball in the bag, and repeats this experiment, many times. What is the minimum expected length of the message she has to convey to Babu per experiment?
A fair die is tossed two times. the probability that 2nd toss results in value greater than first toss is ?
If a random variable X has a Poisson distribution with mean 5, then the expectation E[(X+2)^{2}] equals ___.
In a multiuser operating system on an average, 20 requests are made to use a particular resource per hour. The arrival of requests follows a Poisson distribution. The probability that either one, three or five requests are made in 45 minutes is given by :
Suppose p is the number of cars per minute passing through a certain road junction between 5 PM and 6 PM, and p has a Poisson distribution with mean 3. What is the probability of observing fewer than 3 cars during any given minute in this interval?
Suppose X is distributed as Poisson with mean λ. Then E(1/(X + 1)) is
