Solution

## The correct option is C 623Given, Alex has 12 Blue and White shirts each. Let A and B be two events of picking Blue and White shirt respectively. Also, it is given that he does not replace the used shirt. Probability of choosing White shirt first is P(B)=1224=12 Probability of choosing Blue shirt after White shirt is chosen is P(A)=1223 So, We have to calculate the probability that he first picks a white shirt then a blue shirt which is equal to P(E). ⇒P(E)=P(B)×P(A) ⇒P(E)=12×1223=623
