**72.** A student answers a multiple choice question with 5 alternatives, of which exactly one is correct. The probability that he knows the correct answer is p, 0 < p < 1. If he does not know the correct answer, he randomly ticks one answer. Given that he has answered the question correctly, the probability that he did not tick the answer randomly, is

**Ans: (c)**

**Sol:**

Let us suppose that,

The probability that the student knows the answer = Y

The probability that the student do not know the answer = N

The probability that student choose correct option = C

**73.** A poker hand consists of 5 cards drawn at random from a well-shuffled pack of 52 cards. Then the probability that a poker hand consists of a pair and a triple of equal face values (for example 2 sevens and 3 kings or 2 aces and 3 queens, etc.) is

(A) 6/4165

(B) 23/4165

(C) 1797/4165

(D) 1/4165

**Ans: (A)Sol: **

Total number of combination of 5 cards out of 52 cards = C(52, 5)

Consider 4 cards of the same face value,

Total number of combination of 2 cards out of 4 cards = C(4, 2)

Total number of combination of 2 cards out of 4 cards = C(4, 3)

Considering two sets of 4 cards with equal face values, the possible combination is

C(4, 2). C(4, 3)

There are 13 sets of so, total combination = C(13, 2)⋅C(4, 2)⋅C(4, 3)

Now, for each pair of ranks, we can have a pair of cards from the first rank and a triple from the second rank, or a triple from the first rank, and a pair from the second rank. So, we should multiply by 2.

So, the probability that a poker hand consist of a pair and a triple of equal face values is

(A) 0

(B) 51/2

(C) 21/2

(D) 1

**Ans : (C) **

**Sol.**
