A. 3 prizes of which he wants 1 can be done in (3c1) ways. 97 non prizes of which he wants 4 can be done in (97c4) ways. Total ways to draw 5 out of 100=(100c5). So the answer is (3c1)*(97c4)/(100c5)

B. Same reasoning as above but also for 2 and 3 prizes so [(3c1)*(97c4) + (3c2)*(97c3)+(3c3)*(97c2)]/(100c5)
