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 E1 be the event of getting an orange-flavoured candy.

∴ P(getting an orange-flavoured candy) = P(E1) =`("Number of outcomes favourable to"  E_1)/"Number of all possible outcomes"`


Thus, the probability that Hema takes out an orange-flavoured candy is 0.
