Question

If ten objects are distributed at random among ten persons, the probability that at least one of them will not get object is:

Solution

Correct option is

P(all get exactly one) = P(none of them is empty)

                                  

⇒ P(at least one doesn’t get anything)

= 1 – P(none of them is empty)
