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 Rate this question :
