(i) Total number of cards = 5

Total number of queens = 1

P(getting a queen) = (Number of favourable outcomes)/(Number of total possible outcomes) = 1/5

(ii) When the queen is drawn and put aside, the total number of remaining cards will be 4.

(a) Total number of aces = 1

P(getting Ace) = (Number of favourable outcomes) = 1/4

(b) As queen is already drawn, therefore, the number of queens will be 0.

P(getting a queen) = (Number of favourable outcomes)/(Number of total possible outcomes) = 0/4 = 0
