Solution

The correct option is D

12


Given,

Number of red flowers = 7

Number of white flowers = 5

Number of pink flowers = 4

Number of yellow flowers = 8

Total number of flowers in the box = 7 + 5 + 4 + 8 = 24

Total number of possible outcomes = 24

Number of favourable outcomes = Number of pink flowers + Number of yellow flowers

= 4 + 8

= 12

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

P(picking a pink or yellow flower) = 1224=12

Therefore, the probability that Swetha picks a pink or yellow flower is 12.
