**1. A family has two children. find the probability that both the children are girls given that at least one of them is a girl?**

**Answer: Option 'C'**

**Let b stand for boy and g for girl. The sample space of the experiment is
S = {(g, g), (g, b), (b, g), (b, b)}
Let E and F denote the following events :
E : ‘both the children are girls’
F : ‘at least one of the child is a girl’
Then E = {(g,g)} and F = {(g,g), (g,b), (b,g)}
Now E n F = {(g,g)}
Thus P(F) = 3/4
and P (E n F )= 1/4
Therefore P(E|F) = P(E ∩ F)/P(F) = (1/4)/(3/4) = 1/3**

**2. Ten cards numbered 1 to 10 are placed in a box, mixed up thoroughly and then one card is drawn randomly. If it is known that the number on the drawn card is more than 3, what is the probability that it is an even number?**

**Answer: Option 'D'**

**Let A be the event ‘the number on the card drawn is even’ and B be the
event ‘the number on the card drawn is greater than 3’. We have to find P(A|B).
Now, the sample space of the experiment is S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}
Then A = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, B = {4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}
and A n B = {4, 6, 8, 10}
Also P(A) = 5/2, P(B) = 7/10 and P(A n B) = 4/10
Then P(A|B) = P(A n B)/P(B) = (4/10)/(7/10) = 4/7**

**3. A die is thrown three times. Events X and Y are defined as below:**

X : 4 on the third throw

Y : 6 on the first and 5 on the second throw

What is the probability of X given that Y has already occurred.

**Answer: Option 'B'**

**The sample space has 216 outcomes.
Now X = (1,1,4) (1,2,4) ... (1,6,4) (2,1,4) (2,2,4) ... (2,6,4)
(3,1,4) (3,2,4) ... (3,6,4) (4,1,4) (4,2,4) ...(4,6,4)
(5,1,4) (5,2,4) ... (5,6,4) (6,1,4) (6,2,4) ...(6,5,4) (6,6,4)
Y = {(6,5,1), (6,5,2), (6,5,3), (6,5,4), (6,5,5), (6,5,6)}
and X n Y = {(6,5,4)}.
Now P(Y) = 6/216
and P (X n Y) = 1/216 **

**4. A die is thrown twice and the sum of the numbers appearing is observed to be 6. find the conditional probability that the number 4 has appeared at least once?**

**Answer: Option 'C'**

**Let E be the event that ‘number 4 appears at least once’ and F be the event that ‘the sum of the numbers appearing is 6’.
Then, E = {(4,1), (4,2), (4,3), (4,4), (4,5), (4,6), (1,4), (2,4), (3,4), (5,4), (6,4)}
and F = {(1,5), (2,4), (3,3), (4,2), (5,1)}
We have P(E) = 11/36
and P (F) = 5/36
Also EnF = {(2,4), (4,2)}
Therefore P(EnF) = 2/36
the required probability
P(E|F) = P(EnF)/P(F) = (2/36)/(5/36) = 2/5.**

**5. Given that E and F are events such that P(E) = 0.16, P(F) = 0.4 and P(E n F) = 0.4,**

find P (E|F) and P(F|E)

**Answer: Option 'C'**

**Here, E and F are events
P(E|F) = P(EnF)/P(F) = 0.4/0.4 = 1
P(F|E) = P(EnF)/P(E) = 0.4/0.16 = 1/4.**
