For a certain probability experiment, the probability that event F will occur is 1/4 and the probability that even G will occur is 3/5. Which of the following values could be the probability that the event F∩G (both) will occur?

A-1/5

B-1/4

C-3/5

D-17/20

I am not exactly sure if this is the complete question. Single option correct questions have 5 options to choose from in the GRE.

Probability of event F= \(P(F)=\frac{1}{4}\)

Probability of event G= \(P(G)=\frac{3}{5}\)

Since nothing is mentioned if the events are independent or not we can write= P(F) and P(G)=\(P(F) \times P(G)=\frac{1}{4} \times \frac{3}{5}=\frac{3}{20}\).
