The counting rule that is used for counting the number of experimental outcomes when n objects are selected from a set of N objects where order of selection is not important is called a. permutation b. combination c. multiple step experiment d. none of these alternatives is correct 2. From a group of six people, two individuals are to be selected at random. How many possible selections are there? a. 12 b. 36 c. 15 d. 8 3. If A and B are independent events with P(A) = 0.65 and P(A B)= 0.26, then, P(B) = a. 0.400 b. 0.169 c. 0.390 d. 0.650 4. If P(A) = 0.4, P(B| A) = 0.35, P(A . B) =0.69, then P(B) = a. 0.14 b. 0.43 c. 0.75 d. 0.59 5.
