If the probabilit

Answer :

Let E1 be the event that A fails in an examination

and E2 be the event that B fails in an examination


Then, we have


P (E1) = 0.2 and P (E2) = 0.3


Now, we have to find the P (either E1 or E2 fails)


P(either E1 or E2 fails) = P(E1) + P(E2) – P(E1 E2)


≤ P(E1) + P(E2)


≤ 0.2 + 0.3


≤ 0.5


Hence, the correct option is (C)
