1. a) A family has two children. It is known that at-least one of the children is a girl. What is the
probability that both the children are girls?
b) State and prove any three properties of conditional probability.
2. a) Roll a red die and a green die. Find the probability that total is 5.
b) A book containing 100 pages is opened at random. Find the probability that on the page.
i) A doublet is found. ii) a number whose sum of digits is 10.
3. A box of 6 eggs is rejected once it contains one or more broken eggs. If we examine 10 boxes of
eggs and define the randomvariablesX1, X2 as
1. X1-the number of broken eggs in the 10 boxes.
2. X2-the number of boxes rejected.
4. A letter is known as to have come from either TATANAGAR or CALCUTTA. On the envelope,
just two consecutive letters “TA” are visible. Find the probability that the letter has come from
CALCUTTA.

5. Professor Random has taught probability for many years. She has found that 80% of students who
do the homework pass the exam, while 10% of students who don’t do the homework pass the exam. If
60% of the students do the homework, what percent of students pass the exam? Of students who pass
the exam, what percent did the homework?
