Ex 13.3, 14 If A and B are two events such that A ⊂ B and P(B) ≠ 0, then which of the following is correct? (A) P(A|B) = P BP A (B) P(A| B) < P(A) (C) P(A|B) ≥ P(A) (D) None of these Given, A ⊂ B So, A ∩ B = A P(A ∩ B) = P(A) Now, P(A|B) = 𝑃(𝐴 ∩ 𝐵)𝑃(𝐵) P(B) = 𝑷(𝑨 ∩ 𝑩)𝑃(𝐴|𝐵) P(B) = 𝑷(𝑨)𝑃(𝐴|𝐵) Also, 0 < P(B) ≤ 1 0 < 𝑃(𝐴)𝑃(𝐴|𝐵) ≤ 1 0 × P(A|B) < 𝑃(𝐴)𝑃(𝐴|𝐵) × P(A|B) ≤ 1 × P(A|B) 0 < P(A) ≤ P(A|B) ∴ P(A|B) ≥ P(A) Hence , Option (C) is Correct
