Q)

# Each of the letters of the word MISSISSIPPI are written on separate pieces of paper that are then folded, put in a hat, and mixed thoroughly. One piece of paper is chosen (without looking) from the hat. What is the probability it is an I?

( A ) $\large\frac{2}{5}$
( B ) $\large\frac{4}{11}$
( C ) $\large\frac{1}{3}$
( D ) $\large\frac{1}{4}$

\begin{align*}\text{Total no. of letters}&= 11 \\ \text{No. of letter ' I '} &= 4 \\ \text{Hence probability it is an ' I '}& = \frac{4}{11}\end{align*}
