Solution

## The correct option is E Mark (e): if none of the above four options are correct. This question can be solved without using any of the statements given. Football will be closer to the centre than to the circumference if the point is lying in the segment A. Area of segment A=14πr2 So, probability of point being closer to the circumference =14πr2πr2=14 [The probability of ball being closer to the centre = Area of the smaller circle insideArea of the larger circle =A(A+B)=14]  Suggest Corrections  0      Explore more
