# An event is very unlikely to happen. Its probability is closest to

a. 0.0001

b. 0.001

c. 0.01

d. 0.1

**Solution:**

Probability can be defined as the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of outcomes of an event.

The probability of an event which is unlikely to happen is close to zero i.e. 0.0001

Therefore, its probability is closest to 0.0001.

**✦ Try This: **An event is very unlikely to happen. Its probability is closest to a. 0.0002, b. 0.002, c. 0.02, d. 0.2

Probability can be defined as the ratio of the number of favorable outcomes to the total number of outcomes of an event.

The probability of an event which is unlikely to happen is close to zero i.e. 0.0002

Therefore, its probability is closest to 0.0002.
