The probability that the random selected student will be a 7th grader and own a cell phone will be: \(\frac{55}{300} = \frac{11}{60}\) (A)

The question says "GIVEN that the student is in the 7th grade". That means we can ignore the rest of the chart and only look at the 7th grade row. 55/100 is 11/20, answer E.

We're asked to choose 1 student from the total of 300, so your answer is wrong!

You say I'm wrong, I say you're wrong. I guess we'll have to wait until Bunuel weighs in.
