If A and B are two mutually exclusive events, then

Question :

If A and B are two mutually exclusive events, then

(a) P(A) < P(B’)

(b) P(A) > P(B’)

(c) P(A) < P(B)

(d) None of these

Solution :

Since, A and B are two mutually exclusive events.

\(\therefore\)    A \(\cap\) B = \(\phi\) \(\implies\) Either A \(\subseteq\) B’ or B \(\subseteq\) A’

\(\implies\) P(A) \(\le\) P(B’)  or  P(B) \(\le\) P(A’)

Hence, Answer is (d) None of these.
