Question On a weekend Rani was playing cards with her family .The deck has 52 cards. If her brother drew one card .Question 1 Find the probability of getting a king of red colour (a) 1/26 (b) 1/13 (c) 1/52 (d) 1/4Total number of cards = 52
Total number of kings of red colour = 2
P (getting a king of red colour) = (𝑁𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑘𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠 𝑜𝑓 𝑟𝑒𝑑 𝑐𝑜𝑙𝑜𝑢𝑟)/(𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)
= 2/52
= 𝟏/𝟐𝟔
So, the correct answer is (a)
Question 2 Find the probability of getting a face card. (a) 1/26 (b) 1/13 (c) 2/13 (d) 3/13Total number of cards = 52
Face cards are King, Queen and Jack
Each type has 4 cards
Total number of face cards = 3 × 4 = 12
P (getting a face card) = (𝑁𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑓𝑎𝑐𝑒 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)/(𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)
= 12/52
= 𝟑/𝟏𝟑
So, the correct answer is (d)
Question 3 Find the probability of getting a jack of hearts (a) 1/26 (b) 1/52 (c) 3/52 (d) 3/26Total number of cards = 52
We have 4 Jack cards
Total number of Jack of hearts = 1
P (getting a Jack of hearts) = (𝑁𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝐽𝑎𝑐𝑘 𝑜𝑓 ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑡𝑠 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)/(𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)
= 𝟏/𝟓𝟐
So, the correct answer is (b)
Question 4 Find the probability of getting a red face card (a) 3/26 (b) 1/13 (c) 1/52 (d) 1/4 Total number of cards = 52
Face cards are King, Queen and Jack
Total number Red face cards = 6
P (getting a red face card) = (𝑁𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑟𝑒𝑑 𝑓𝑎𝑐𝑒 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)/(𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)
= 6/52
= 𝟑/𝟐𝟔
So, the correct answer is (a)
Question 5 Find the probability of getting a spade. (a) 1/26 (b) 1/13 (c) 1/52 (d) 1/4Total number of cards = 52
We have 4 suits –
Spade, Club, Diamond and Hearts
Total number of spade cards = 13
P (getting a spade card) = (𝑁𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑠𝑝𝑎𝑑𝑒 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)/(𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑑𝑠)
= 13/52
= 𝟏/𝟒
So, the correct answer is (d)
