Answer.    [C]
Solution.     Probability: probability means possibility. It is a branch of mathematics that deals with the occurrence of a random event. The value is expressed from zero to one.
  Total cases = 6000
  Probability of getting first prize (p(A)) = 0.08
p(A) = \frac{Number\, of\, tickets\, the\, bought}{Total\, tickets}
0.08 × 6000 = Number of tickets the bought

\frac{8}{100}\times 6000 = Number of tickets the bought
Number of tickets the bought = 480.
