# If the probability of an event is p, the probability of its complementary event will be

a. p - 1

b. p

c. 1 - p

d. 1 - 1/p

**Solution:**

For any event A, there exists another event A‘ which shows the remaining elements of the sample space S.

A’ denotes complementary event of A

A’ = S - A

We know that

Probability of an event + Probability of its complementary event = 1

It can be written as

Probability of its complementary event = 1 - Probability of an event

= 1 - p

Therefore, the probability of its complementary event will be 1 - p.
