Which of the following statements regarding probability is always correct? a . A probability can range from 0 to 1. b . A probability close to 0 means the event is not likely to happen. c . A probability close to 1 means the event is likely to happen. d . all of the above are correct. ______ 2 . According to the classical definition of probability a . All the events are equally likely. b . The probability is based on hunches. c . Divide the number of successes by the number of failures. d . One outcome is exactly twice the other. ______ 3 .
