And 4 queens, but out of these 2 queens are red in color.


Hence the numbers of cards which are red cards or a queen are 26 + 2 = 28 cards.
So out of these 28 cards, a card is drawn.


So, the probability of getting either a red card or a queen is


P (getting either a red card or a queen)




So, the probability of getting neither a red card nor a queen is = 1 – P (getting either a red card or a queen)





Hence the probability of getting neither a red card nor a queen is .
