Your Answer
D

Solution

The correct option is C

17


Given, 

Number of red flowers = 10

Number of white flowers = 6

Number of pink flowers = 4

Number of yellow flowers = 8

Total number of flowers in the box = 10 + 6 + 4 + 8 = 28

Total number of outcomes = 28

Number of favourable outcomes = 4

Probability of an event, P(E) = number of favourable outcomestotal number of outcomes

P(picking a pink flower) = 428=17

Therefore, the probability that Swetha picks a pink flower is 17.
