If this question is right, then it's D.

The probability = probability of both red + probability of both Kings - probability of both red kings. None of ABC matches the value.

For probability of both red: First time you draw, you have 26 red cards out of 52, and second time you have 25 red cards out of 51, so probability of both red is (26/52)*(25/51)

Similarly, for both kings, you have 4 kings out of 52 cards first time and 3 out of 51 second time, so probability of both kings is (4/52)*(3/51)

For both red kings, you have 2 red kings out of 52 first time and 1 out of 51 second time, so probability is (2/52)*(1/51)

So probability is (26*25+4*3-2)/(52*51)=0.249

The question is incorrect, since we are not given the initial number of cards

The question is incomplete. No tags. No OA.

Locked.
