P( blue ball)= 1/ 4 P ( not a blue ball) = 3/4

to find = P ( neither a blue nor a small ball)

statement 1
P ( big ball) = 5/8
P ( not a blue ball)=3/4
p = 3/4 * 5/8
statement is suficient

statement 2
P(small)* P(not blue )=9/40
P(small)= 3/10 P (big)= 7/10
P(big)*P(not blue)

statement 2 sufficient

Probability (Blue ball) = 1/4
Probability (Not Blue) = Probablity (other colour) = 3/4

To find Probability (Neither Blue nor small) = Probability (other colour and Big)

Statement 1 : Probability (Not small = Big ) = 5/8
Probability small = 3/8
Can't calculate anything from this..
Insufficient

Statement 2 :
Probability (small and other colour) = 9/40
Probability (big and other colour) = 3/4 - 9/40 = 21/40
Sufficient
