Mark the correct A. 1/3

B. 2/3

C. 5/5

D. 3/5

Answer :


Probability of getting head to appear first time(r=1), n should be even.

So we have to check probability for n=2,4,6…

P(x=r)= nCr pr qn-r = 2/5

For n=2;

P(X=1)= pq

For n=4

P(X=1) = pq3

Required probability = pq + pq3 + pq5 + … =2/5

2/5= pq(1+ q2 +q4 + …)


3p= 1

P =1/3
