Total number of subcommitees = 6C3 = 20

Number of subcommitees with "M" = 5C2 = 10 (take M and any 2 from the rest 5)
Number of subcommitees with "M" and "A" = 4C1 = 4 (take M and A and any 1 from the rest 4)

% = 4/10 * 100 = 40% ---> option C

C


number of ways you can split the team into 2

6C3 = 20

number of ways u can select a group where both ppl are in same group,

4C1 (since 2 person in a grp is already fixed and we are going to select 3 rd person from group of 4 ppl)

and again this is for 2 groups, so 4C1 + 4C1 = 8

So 8/20 = 40%
