Solution

The correct option is C 23We know, probability of an event E is given by, P(E)=Number of trials where the event happenedTotal number of trials Probability of picking a red ball =1030=13 We know that the sum of probabilities of all possible outcomes of an event is 1. Hence, the probability of picking a black ball = 1- (Probability of picking a red ball) = 1−13 = 23
