            (A)  A and B are mutually exclusive

            (B)  P(A'B')=\left [ 1-P(A) \right ]\left [ 1-P(B) \right ]

            (C)  P(A)=P(B)

            (D) P(A)+P(B)=1

Q.15   One card is drawn at random from a well shuffled deck of 52 cards. In which of the following cases are the events E and F independent ?

                (iii) E : ‘the card drawn is a king or queen’

                     F : ‘the card drawn is a queen or jack’.

One card is drawn at random from a well shuffled deck of  cards Total king or queen = 8 total queen or jack = 8 E : ‘the card drawn is a king or queen’ F : ‘the card drawn is a queen or jack’.  a card which is queen  = 4 Hence, E and F are not indepentdent  events .
