(A) 0.4

(B) 0.375

(C) 0.33

(D) 0.3

Let $A_i$ be the event of playing an opponent of type $i$.

$A_1$ = playing the half of the opponent pool where the probability of winning P (winning|$A_1$) = 0.3

$A_2$ = playing the half of the opponent pool type 2, where the probability of winning P (winning|$A_2$) = 0.4

$A_3$ = playing the half of the opponent pool type 3, where the probability of winning P (winning|$A_3$) = 0.5

By total probability theorem, we get, P(winning) = P($A_1$)P(winning|$A_1$) + P($A_2$)P(winning|$A_2$) + P($A_3$)P(winning|$A_3$)

P (winning) = 50% $\times$ 0.3 + 25% $\times$ 0.4 + 25% $\times$ 0.5

P (winning) = 0.375.
