Best answer

Total no. of remaining cards = 52 – 3 = 49

(i) E⟶ event of getting hearts

No. of favorable outcomes = 3 {4 – 1}

Probability, P(E) = (No.of favorable outcomes)/(Total no.of possible outcomes)

P(E) = 13/49

(ii) E ⟶ event of getting queen

No. of favorable outcomes = 3 (4 – 1) {Since queen of clubs is removed}

P(E) = 3/49

(iii) E ⟶ event of getting clubs

No. of favorable outcomes = 10 (13 – 3) {Since 3 club cards are removed}

P(E) = 10/49
