# In an interview conducted for 5 ABC Consulting candidates, 6 Global Ltd. candidates, 2 candidates from Avilvar company, 3 from Sona Ltd and one from Bent company, what is the probability that the candidate who would be selected is from Sona Ltd. (It is given that one candidate from Global Ltd. had not come for the interview round and one candidate from ABC Consulting got blacklisted during the interview process.)

Probability is a branch of mathematics that deals with calculating the likelihood of a given event's occurrence, which is expressed as a number between 1 and 0.

## Answer: In an interview conducted for 5 ABC Consulting candidates, 6 Global Ltd. candidates, 2 candidates from Avilvar company, 3 from Sona Ltd and one from Bent company, the probability that the candidate who would be selected is from Sona Ltd., is 1/5.

It is given that one candidate from Global Ltd. had not come for the interview round and one candidate from ABC Consulting got blacklisted during the interview process.

**Explanation:**

Number of Candidates from ABC Consulting= 5

Number of Candidates from Global LTD = 6

Number of Candidates from Avilvar Company = 2

Number of Candidates from Sona LTD= 3

Number of Candidates from Bent Company = 1

The total number of candidates = 17

Number of candidates disqualified or who did not come for the interview = 2

Thus, the total number of qualified applicants for selection = 17 – 2 = 15

Therefore, the probability that the selected applicant is from Sona Ltd.

= 3/15

**= **1/5
