Solution

## The correct option is A 0.42 For an event E, P(E)=Number of favourable outcomes Number of all possible outcomes There are 42 blue balls in the bag. Thus, the number of favourable outcomes is 42. Total number of balls inside bag = 25 + 42 + 33 = 100 Thus P(picking blue ball) =42100=0.42
