A box contains 20 balls: 10 white and 10 black. The balls can be drawn at random. If the first three drawn balls are black, what is the probability that the next two drawn balls will also be black?


(A) 21/136
(B) 4/17
(C) 1/3
(D) 4/7
(E) 2/5


3 black balls are already drawn , remaining are 7 black and 10 white balls
number of ways we can draw two black balls from remaining = \(7c2\)
total number of ways we can draw two balls = \(17c2\)
required probability = \(7c2\) / \(17c2\) = 21/136
