The Question on Denise : Q. No.2
In my Opinion has a simpler solution than the one stated in the document.

We shall look at it in the following way :
P = {1- (Probability of getting that One right combination in the 75 trials) }

P = 1 -{ C(75,1) / C(4000,1) }
P = 157/160

Option C.

I think that all these questions were already discussed on the forum, so you could try to search.

Bunuel,
Actually I don't have either of OG Quantitative 2th Edition or OG 11th Edition..So it's bit tough for me to search this individual question..Not only these but also all the questions(from these two books) referred by you/bb in GMAT Club Math book.

So,can you please let me know if there is any particular thread in the forum that contains the link to the discussions of ALL questions from OG Quantitative 2th Edition or OG 11th Edition..?

Hi banuel,

Is there any documents where concepts and approach methods of inequalities explained ? I am looking for it for a long time but haven't found one.
