for this using event probability

since anothony and michael are on two positions, there are only four commities that can have these two together

therefore valid events = 4,

but is the universse of evetns = 6C3 or 6C3 x 2?

I saw this question on a MGMAT CAT.

If you have both Michael in the first subcommittee, then you have five different board members available to fill the two extra spot, therefore, Anthony has a chance of 2 in 5, or 40%.
