Solution

Let A: exactly 2 boys are in the committee,

B: at least one girl must be in the committee.

So, 
P(B) = `(""^4"C"_1 xx ""^7"C"_3 + ""^4"C"_2 xx ""^7"C"_2 + ""^4"C"_3 xx ""^7"C"_1 + ""^4"C"_4)/(""^11"C"_4)`

= `(59)/(66)` &

`"P" ("A" ∩ "B") = (""^4"C"_2 xx ""^7"C"_2)/(""^11"C"_4) = (21)/(55)`.

= Now

`"P"("A"/"B") = ("P" ("A" ∩ "B"))/("P"("B")`

= `(21/55)/(59/66)`

= `(126)/(295)`.
