Answer:- 1/2

Probability=# of favorable outcomes/total # of outcomes;

There are total of 8 (p,q) pairs possible so that the absolute difference between the two numbers to be 2: (1, 3), (2, 4), (3, 5), (3, 1), (4, 6), (4, 2), (5, 7), (5, 3) (first # is chosen from set P and second # is chosen from set Q). 4 pairs contain the number 3 in it, so P=4/8=1/2.
