Solution

## Let E be the event of taking out a candy from bag.Solution(i):The bag contains only lemon flavored candies, and nothing else.There are no orange flavored candies in the bag. Hence there is no possibility of taking out an orange candy.Therefore, the probability of taking out an orange flavored candy =0Solution(ii):The bag contains only lemon flavored candies, and nothing else.Therefore (No.of favorable outcomes)=(Total no.of possible outcomes)We know that, Probability of an event E, P(E) =(No.of favorable outcomes)(Total no.of possible outcomes)P(E)=1Therefore, the probability of taking out a lemon flavored candy =1
