Solution

Suppose there are x candies in the bag.

Then, number of orange candies in the bag = 0.

And, number of lemon candies in the bag = x.

Let E2 be the event of getting a lemon-flavoured candy.

∴ P(getting a lemon-flavoured candy) = P(E2) = `("Number of outcomes favourable to"  E_2)/"Number of all possible outcomes"`

`=x/x = 1`

Thus, the probability that Hema takes out a lemon-flavoured candy is 1.
