Ques:- Why you wants to work with us which is far away from your home?
Ques:- Out of 10 persons working on a project, 4 are graduates. If 3 are selected, what is the probability that there is at least one graduate among them?

Out of 10 persons, 4 are graduates; so, (10 – 4) = 6 are under-graduates.

If there is no restriction, any three can be chosen from the ten in (10C3) = 120 ways.

Now, if all three chosen are under-graduates; it can take place in (6C3) = 20 ways.

Therefore, the probability that there will be no graduate among the three chosen = (20 / 120) = (1 / 6).

Therefore, the probability that there will be at least one graduate among the three chosen = {1 – (1 / 6)} = (5 / 6) = 0.8333.

Ques:- A football team played 60 matches out of which 30% were won by them. If they start winning all the next matches after how many matches will the average winning rate be 50% ?

Matches played: 60.
Matches won: 30% of 60 => (60*(30/100)) = 18 matches.
Iterative approach:
On adding 1 to matches played and matches won, on every iteration until the win percentage gets to 50. So
19 / 61 = 0.3114754098360656
20 / 62 = 0.3225806451612903
21 / 63 = 0.3333333333333333
22 / 64 = 0.34375

Similarly,
41 / 83 = 0.4939759036144578
42 / 84 = 0.5

So, after 60th match 24 more matches has to be played and won to get 50% average winning rate.
