# All red face cards are removed from a pack of playing cards. The remaining cards were well shuffled and then a card is drawn at random from them. Find the probability that the drawn card is

(i) a red card (ii) a face card

(iii) a card of clubs

Answer :

Number of red face cards removed = 6

∴ Remaining cards = 52 – 6 = 46

Hence, Total no. of outcomes = 46

(i) Possible outcomes of red cards =26 – 6 =20

(ii)Total no. of face cards in original 52 cards pack=12

As, 6 face cards have been removed,

So, No. of face cards remaining in 46 cards = 6

(iii) Possible outcomes of card of clubs = 13
