Which of the following cannot be the probability of an event?
(A)\frac{1}{3}              (B) 0.1             (C) 3%             (D)\frac{17}{16}

Answers (1)

Answer.   [D]
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
(A) 1/3
Here 0 < 1/3 < 1
Hence it can be the probability of an event.

(B) 0.1
Here 0 < 0.1 < 1
Hence it can be the probability of an event.

(C) 3% = 3/100 = 0.03
Here 0 < 0.03 < 1
Hence it can be the probability of an event.

(D)17/16                        
Here \frac{17}{16}> 1 
Hence \frac{17}{16} is not a probability of event
Hence option (D) is correct answer.
