**1. In an ODI match, a wicket keeper drops a catch 6 times out of 30 catches he gets. Find the probability of the wicketkeeper not dropping a catch.**

Sol: Let E be the event of dropping a catch

P(E)= Probability of the wicketkeeper dropping a catch =

Thus, Probability of not dropping a catch is 1-P(E) =

ii. P(Probability of 1 girl) =

iii. P(Probability of No girl) =

Sum of all Probabilities =

**4. Three coins are tossed simultaneously 210 times with the following frequencies of different outcomes:**

Outcome | 3 Heads | 2 Heads | 1 Head | No Head |

Frequency | 45 | 37 | 55 | 73 |

**If the three coins are simultaneously tossed again, What is the probability of not getting even a single head?**

Sol: Number of times the coins were tossed = 210

P( Not getting even a single head) =

**5. An organization selected 1900 families at random and surveyed them to determine a relationship between income level and the number of vehicles in a family. The information gathered is listed in the table below:**

**Vehicles per family**

Income level | 0 | 1 | 2 | More than 2 |

Less than 6000 | 10 | 60 | 25 | 0 |

6000 to 11000 | 0 | 205 | 27 | 2 |

11000 to 14000 | 1 | 435 | 29 | 1 |

14000 to 17000 | 2 | 369 | 59 | 25 |

17000 or more | 1 | 479 | 82 | 88 |

**Find the probability that a family chosen at random is**

**(i) Earning 11000 – 14000 per month and owning exactly 1 vehicle.**

**(ii) Earning 17000 or more per month and owning exactly 2 vehicles.**

**(iii) Earning less than 6000 per month and does not own any vehicle.**

**(iv) Earning 6000-11000 per month and owning more than 2 vehicles**

**(v) Owning more than 2 vehicles**

Sol: Total number of families: 1900

- P( Earning 11000-14000 and owning 1 vehicle) =
4351900 - P( Earning 17000 or more and owning 2 vehicles) =
821900 - P( Earning less than 6000 and doesn’t own any vehicle) =
101900 - P( Earning 6000-11000 and owning more than 2 vehicles) =
21900 - P( Owning more than 2 vehicles) =
1161900

**6. In a science test, the marks of 100 students of class VI are listed in the following table:**

Marks
(Out of 100) |
No of students |

0-20 | 18 |

20-30 | 17 |

30-40 | 15 |

40-50 | 8 |

50-60 | 14 |

60-70 | 21 |

70-100 | 7 |

Total | 100 |

**i. What is the probability that a student selected at random has scored less than 40?**

**ii. What is the probability that a student selected at random has scored more than 50?**

Sol: Total number of students = 100

Number of students having scored less than 40% =

Number of students having scored more than 50% =

i. P(Less than 40%) =

ii. P(More than 50%) =

**7. The distance (in km) of 20 doctors from their residence to their place of work were found as follows:**

**5, 6, 4, 7, 2, 9, 1, 6, 4, 3, 5, 32, 4, 6, 21, 15, 4,15,18,5**

**What is the probability that a doctor lives:**

**(i) Less than 6 km from her place of work?**

**(ii) More than or equal to 6 km from her place of work?**

**(iii) Within 0.5 km from her place of work?**

Sol: Total number of doctors = 20

Number of doctors with travelling distance below 6km = 10

Number of doctors with travelling distance more than or equal to 6 km = 10

Number of doctors with travelling distance below 0.5 km = 0

(i) P( Less than 6 km) =
