.25, .5, and .25

You can assign a value to art, say, 1.
You should assign the same value to psychology (equal value-- equally likely.
Assign twice that value to geology(twice as likely.)

Add up your values (1+1+2=4), and you have your denominator. Use the values you assigned for your numerators...

This is a pretty easy question, Bhai...
