UGC-NET | UGC NET CS 2016 July – II | Question 4
There are three cards in a box. Both sides of one card are black, both sides of one card are red, and the third card has one black side and one red side. We pick a card at random and observe only one side.
What is the probability that the opposite side is the same colour as the one side we observed?
Explanation: There are BB RR and BR, total outcome is 3, probability that the opposite side is the same color as the one side we observed:
It is clear that BB and RR will show the same color on opposite side, so favorable outcome will be 2.
Probability will be favorable outcome / total outcome
i.e. 2 / 3.
So, option (B) is correct.
