In a class of 125 students 70 passed in Mathematics, 55 in Statistics and 30 in both. The probability that a student selected at random from the class has passed in only one subject is 
A, B, C in order cut a pack of cards replacing them after each cut, on the condition that the first who cuts a spade shall win the prize. Then the probability of B to win the prize is
A box contains 5 radio tubes of which 2 are defective. The tubes are tested one after the other until the 2 defective tubes are discovered. The probability that the process stopped on the third test, is
There are 4 white and 4 black balls in a bag and 3 balls are drawn at random. If balls of same colour are identical, the probability that none of them is black, is
A quadratic equation is chosen from the set of all the quadratic equations which are unchanged by squaring their roots. The chance that the chosen equation has equal roots is :
A jar contains 2 yellow candies, 4 red candies, and 6 blue candies. Candies are randomly drawn out of the jar onebyone and eaten. The probability that the 2 yellow candies will be eaten before any of the red candies are eaten, is
If a, b and c are three numbers (not necessarily different) chosen randomly and with replacement from the set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, the probability that (ab + c) is even, is
A can hit a target 4 times in 5 shots, B three times in 4 shots and C twice in 3 shots. They fire a target if exactly two of them hit the target then the chance that it is C who has missed is
India play two matches each with West Indies and Australia. In any match the probabilities of India getting 0, 1 and 2 points are 0.45, 0.05 and 0.50 respectively. Assuming that the outcomes are independent, the probability of India getting at least 7 points, is 
A letter is known to have come from either
TATANAGAR or CALCUTTA. On the
envelope, just two consecutive letters TA are
visible . The probability that the letter has come
from CALCUTTA is
Mr. Dupont is a professional wine taster. When given a French wine, he will identify it with probability 0.9 correctly as French, and will mistake it for a Californian wine with probability 0.1. When given a Californian wine, he will identify it with probability 0.8 correctly as Californian, and will mistake it for a French wine with probability 0.2. Suppose that Mr. Dupont is given ten unlabelled glasses of wine, three with French and seven with Californian wines. He randomly picks a glass, tries the wine, and solemnly says : "French". The probability that the wine he tasted was Californian, is nearly equal to
Suppose a and b are singledigit positive integers chosen independently and at random. The probability that the point (a, b) lies above the parabola y = ax2 – bx, is
A hunter fires a shot at an elk from a distance of 100m, and hits it with a probability of 0.5. If he does not hit it on the first shot, he fires a second shot from a distance of 150m. If he does not hit the elk in this case, he fires the third shot from a distance of 200m. If the probability of a hit is inversely proportional to the square of the distance, then the probability of hitting the elk can be expressed in lowest rational as m/n. Find (m + n).
When a missile is fired from a ship, the probability that it is intercepted is 1/3. The probability that the missile hits the target, given that it is not intercepted is 3/4. If three missiles are fired independently from the ship, the probability that all three hits the target, is
A number is picked up at random from the number {1, 2,.........1000}. The probability that the number is of the form m^{n} (m, n > 1) is
