Total outcome = 52

Probability of getting a jack of spade = 1 / 52. Since, there is only one jack of spade.

Similarly, probability of of getting a queen of heart = 1 / 52. Since, there is only one queen of heart.

Probability of getting a jack of spade or a queen of heart = 1 / 52 + 1 / 52 = 2 / 52 = 1 / 26.
