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

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.
