Given

In a bag, there are 5 red, 6 black and 4 white balls. Then, total number of outcomes = 5 + 6 + 4 = 15 (i) Probability of white ball = 4 / 15

(ii) Probability of not black = 5 + 4 = 9 balls Therefore, Probability of not black = 9 / 15 = 3 / 5

(iii) Probability of red or black = 5 + 6 = 11 Therefore, Probability of red or black = 11 / 15

(iv) Probability of ball which is neither red nor black, i.e, white ball = 4 Therefore, Probability of ball which is neither red nor black = 4 / 15
