Solution

There are 4 ace cards in a deck of 52 playing cards. 

∴ Number of non-ace cards = 52 − 4 = 48 

Let E be the event of drawing a non-ace card. 

Total number of outcomes = 52 

Number of favourable outcomes = 48 

`P(E)=text{Number of favourable outcomes}/text{ Total Number of outcomes}=48/52=12/13`

The correct answer is C.
