# A card is selected from a deck of 52 cards. The probability of its being a red face card is

a. 3/26

b. 3/13

c. 2/13

d. 1/2

**Solution:**

Probability defines the likelihood of occurrence of an event. There are many real-life situations in which we may have to predict the outcome of an event.

It is given that

Number of cards in a deck = 52

We know that there are 12 face cards

6 red i.e. 3 hearts and 3 diamonds

6 black i.e. 3 spade and 3 club

So the probability of getting a red face card = 6/52 = 3/26

Therefore, the probability of it being a red face card is 3/26.

**✦ Try This: **A card is selected from a deck of 52 cards. The probability of its being a black face card is a. 3/26, b. 3/13, c. 2/13, d. 1/2
