d) 0.657 ?

the probability that A plays song that Leo does't like = 7/10
the probability that B plays song that Leo does't like = 7/10
the probability that C plays song that Leo does't like = 7/10

0.7^3 = 0.343

1-0.343 = 0.657

Agree it should be D.

P(Listening to a song) = 1 - P(Not listening to song on A or B or C) = 1- {7/10*7/10*7/10} = 657/1000

another approach

Probability that A plays the right music = 0.3
Probability that B plays the right music = 0.7*0.3 = .21
Probabiltiy that C plays the right music = 0.7*0.7*0.3 = .147

Total = 0.657
