Question

A bag contains four tickets marked with numbers 112, 121, 211, 222. One ticket is drawn at random from the bag. Let

Ei(i = 1, 2, 3) denote the event that its digit on the ticket is 2. Than:

Solution

Correct option is

E1E2E3 are not independent.

Check manually. Don’t guess of two events are independent unless obvious.

          

          

          

Thus, E1E2E3 are pair wise independent

         

⇒     E1E2E3 are not independent.
