Q.2. If the probability for A to fail in an examination is 0.2 and that for B is 0.3, then the probability that either A or B fails is 0.5. (1989 - 1 Mark)

Ans. Sol.  P (A ∪  B) = P (A) + P (B) – P (A ∩ B)
= P (A) + P (B) – P (A) P (B)
[∵A and B are independent events] = 0.2 + 0.3 – 0.2 × 0.3 = 0.5 – 0.06 = 0.44 ≠ 0.5
