#### Question

A single letter is selected at random from the word ‘Probability’. Find the probability that it is a vowel.

#### Solution

Possible outcomes= s={'p','r','o','b','a','b','i','l','i','t,''y'}

n(s)=11

Event of selection of vowels =E={'o','a','i','i'}

n(E)=4

Probability of selection of a vowel =p(s)=(n(E))/(n(s))=4/11

Is there an error in this question or solution?
