A probability experiment was conducted. Which of these cannot be considered as a probability of an outcome?
(i) 1/3 (ii) -1/5 (iii) 0.80 (iv) -0.78
(v) 0 (vi) 1.45 (vii) 1 (viii) 33%
Probability to its very basics is the ratio of ‘No. of favorable outcomes’ and ‘Total number of outcomes.’
i.e., P =
∴ It cannot be negative as both numerator and denominator are always positive.
Also, it cannot be greater than 1 (∵ number of favorable outcomes is always a subset of total outcome)
Now in this question the values of
∴ they are not probability of any event.
