MCQ

If a digit is chosen at random from the digit 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, then the probability that it is odd, is

#### Options

• $\frac{4}{9}$

• $\frac{5}{9}$

• $\frac{1}{9}$

• $\frac{2}{3}$

#### Solution

digits are chosen from 1, 2, 3 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 are placed in a box and mixed thoroughly. One digit is picked at random.

TO FIND: Probability of getting an odd digit

Total number of digits is 9

Digit that are odd number are 1,3,5,7,9

Total number of odd digits is 5

"We know that PROBABILITY "="Number of favourable event" /"Total number of event"

Hence probability of getting an odd digit is 5/9
