Lets say total students= 100
Max case = 30 students without either skills
Min case = 5 students without either skills

30-5 = 25

25/100 = 0.25

This problem becomes easy when we assume an arbitrary number(100) for the total
number of students. 25 in a group of 100 students have leadership quality and 70 of
the total students have good management skills

Maximum probability of selecting a student who has neither of the two skills is when
all 25 students who have good leadership skills have good management skills.
Here, we have 30 students who have neither of the two skills.

Minimum probability of selecting a student who has neither of the two skills is when
all 25 students who have good leadership skills don't have good management skills.
Here, we have 5 students who have neither of the two skills.

Therefore, the difference between maximum and minimum probability is \(\frac{30-5}{100} = \frac{25}{100} =\) 0.25(Option A)
