A bag contains lemon-flavoured candies only. Hema takes out one candy without looking into the bag. What is the probability that she takes out a lemon-flavoured candy?
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.
