My solution is in a word document as I used a table to solve the question. I can't display the table properly here. However, I also can't find a button to let me make an attachement. I don't know if I got my rights to attach files disabled or I am pure blind and can't find it
Maybe the moderators can help me with the attachement.

Made a mistake with my table. Yes, answer is 3/20 (15/100). But I'm still not able to attach my document. Can someone tell me why ?

In any case, my working is the same as amit_upasan's.

A:(prob of picking a student from class A)*(prob of picking a student with glasses)=2/10*1/2
do the same for a student from class B and C
B: 3/10*1/10
C: 2/10*1/10
A+B+C
answer=3/20

A - 50% students, 20% wear glasses = 10% of total students
B - 30% students, 10% wear glasses = 3% of total students
C - 20% students, 10% wear glasses = 2% of total students
