1. Total numbers of cards = 5

P(E) = (Number of favourable outcomes/ Total number of outcomes)

(i) Numbers of queen = 1

P (picking a queen) = ⅕ = 0.2

(ii) If the queen is drawn and put aside, the total numbers of cards left is (5-4) = 4

(a) Total numbers of ace = 1

P (picking an ace) = ¼ = 0.25

(b) Total numbers of queen = 0

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