A. 2/5
B. 4/7
C. 10/17
D. 7/24
E. 7/10



Suppose there are 100 students

Group A : 40% = 40 students
40% drink beer = 16
40% mixed = 16
20% both = 8

Group B 60% = 60
30% beer= 18
30% mixed = 18
20% both= 12

now we need both ( beer + mixed = both)

probability = total beer drinker = 16+18 =34 and both = 20
thus 20/34 = 10/17
Hence C
