Five cards – ten, jack, queen, king and an ace of diamonds are shuffled face downwards. One card is picked at random.
(i) What is the probability that the card is a queen?
(ii) If a king is drawn first and put aside, what is the probability that the second card picked up is the (a) ace? (b) king?
Total number of possible outcomes, n(S) = 5
(i) Number of events of drawing a queen, n(E) = 1
(ii) If a king is drawn first and put aside, total number of remaining cards, n(S) = 4
a) Probability that second card is ace,
b) Since there was only a single king and when it is put aside, then n(E) = 0
