Toolbox:
  • Sum of the event and its complementary event is always 1
  • $\therefore P(A)+P(A')=1$
Let A be the event
Given $P(A)=\large\frac{2}{11}$
$\therefore$ P(not A)=P(A')=1-P(A)
$\Rightarrow 1-\large\frac{2}{11}$
$\Rightarrow\large\frac{9}{11}$
$\therefore P(A')=\large\frac{9}{11}$
Hence (A) is the correct answer.
