$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;0.25,0.32,0.17\\(B)\;0.35,0.42,0.27\\(C)\;0.45,0.42,0.37\\(D)\;\text{None of these}\end{array} $

Step 1:

Given :

$P(e_1)=P(e_2)=0.08$

$P(e_3)=P(e_4)=P(e_5)=0.1$

$P(e_6)=P(e_7)=0.2$

$P(e_8)=P(e_9)=0.07$

$A=\{e_1,e_5,e_8\}$

$B=\{e_2,e_5,e_8,e_9\}$

Addition of all probabilities will be equal to 1

Step 2:

$P(A)=\large\frac{n(e_1,e_5,e_8)}{n(S)}$

$\Rightarrow \large\frac{0.08+0.1+0.07}{1}$

$\Rightarrow 0.25$

Step 3:

$P(B)=\large\frac{n(e_2,e_5,e_8,e_9)}{n(S)}$

$\Rightarrow \large\frac{0.08+0.1+0.07+0.7}{1}$

$\Rightarrow 0.32$

Step 4:

$P(A \cap B)=P(e_1,e_5,e_8) \cap P(e_2,e_5,e_8,e_9)$

$\Rightarrow P(e_5,e_8)$

$\Rightarrow 0.1+0.07$

$\Rightarrow 0.17$

Hence (A) is the correct answer.
