Total number of even numbers will be (100-60)/2 +1=21
Total number of numbers =100-60 +1=41

So probablity=21/41 option D

(E) 21/40

Total integers in the sequence = 41 (including 60 and 100)

Total Even Number = 21 (Cause the sequence starts with an even number and ends with an even number)

Probability = Favourable / Total = 21/41

Possible outcomes = number of terms from 60 to 100: (100-60) = 40. (40+1) = 41

[Mental check: 1,2,3,4. From 1 to 4 there are four terms. (4-1) = 3. ADD 1. (3 + 1) = 4 terms]

Favorable outcomes: even numbers in the range

Number of even terms, increment is 2

# of even terms: $$\frac{(LastTerm-FirstTerm)}{increment} + 1$$

$$\frac{(100-60)}{2}=\frac{40}{2}=20 + 1 = 21$$
even terms

$$\frac{Favorable}{Possible}=\frac{21}{41}$$

The number of integers from 60 to 100, inclusive, is 100 - 60 + 1 = 41.

The number of even integers from 60 to 100, inclusive, is (100 - 60)/2 + 1 = 21.

So the probability of selecting an even number is 21/41.
