(i) Total number of cards = 5 Total number of queens = 1

(ii) When the queen is drawn and put aside, the total number of remaining cards will be 4.

(a) Total number of aces = 1

P (getting an ace) = 1/4

(b) As queen is already drawn, therefore, the number of queens will be 0.

P (getting a queen) = 0/4 = 0
