Four persons are selected at random out of 3 men, 2 women and 4 children. The probability that there are exactly 2 children in the selection is


  •  11/21

  • 9/21

  •  10/21

  •  none of these

There are nine persons (three men, two women and four children) out of which four persons can be selected in 9C4 = 126 ways.
∴ Total number of elementary events = 126
Exactly two children means selecting two children and two other people from three men and two women.
This can be done in 4C2 × 5C2 ways.
∴ Favourable number of elementary events = 4C2 × 5C2 = 60
So, required probability = \[\frac{60}{126} = \frac{10}{21}\]


  Is there an error in this question or solution?
