Solution

## The correct option is D 20C10220Total number of subsubsets of set X=210=1024 Number of subsets with zero element =10C0 Number of subsets with one element =10C1 Number of subsets with two elements =10C2 . . . . Number of subsets with 10 elements =10C10 A & B are taken from P(X) from 210 subsets so total ways =210×210 Number of ways such that A and B have equal number of elements=(10C0)2+(10C1)2+(10C2)2+........+(10C10)2 =20C10 Required probability =20C10220  Suggest Corrections  1      Similar questions  Explore more
