A 0.1
B 0.16
C 0.24
D 0.36
E 0.42


rain = 0.6
no rain = 0.4
0.6*.4 = .24
IMO C

A 0.1

C 0.24
D 0.36
E 0.42


Probability that it will rain on Monday but not on Tuesday
= 0.6 *

In probability when each event takes place = 1

Now when an event wont take place = (1 - 0.6)

= 0.6 * 0.4
= 0.24

Answer C
