**Answer:** Option **D**

**Explanation:**

Here, S = {1, 2, 3, 4, ...., 19, 20}.

Let E = event of getting a multiple of 3 or 5 = {3, 6 , 9, 12, 15, 18, 5, 10, 20}.

**Answer:** Option **A **

**Explanation:**

Total number of balls = (2 + 3 + 2) = 7.

Let S be the sample space.

Then,*n*(S) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of 7

= 7C

(7 x 6)

=

(2 x 1)

= 21.

Let E = Event of drawing 2 balls, none of which is blue.

*n*(E) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of (2 + 3) balls.

= 5C
