Or, we need to isolate multiples of 35. Or, we need to see how many numbers there are in the list 105, 140, 175…..980. 35 * 3, 35 * 4…35 * 28… Or, there are 26 such numbers. Probability $\frac{26}{128}\\$ = $\frac{13}{64}\\$ The question is "what is the probability that it will be a multiple of 5?" ##### Hence the answer is "$\frac{13}{64}\\$" Choice C is the correct answer. ###### Prepare for CAT 2022 with 2IIM's Daily Preparation Schedule ###### Know all about CAT Exam Syllabus and what to expect in CAT ###### Best CAT Online Coaching Try upto 40 hours for free Learn from the best! ###### Already have an Account? ###### CAT Coaching in ChennaiCAT 2021Enroll at 49,000/- 44,000/- Online Classroom Batches Starting Now! ###### Best CAT Coaching in Chennai Introductory offer of 5000/- Attend a Demo Class ###### Best Indore IPM & Rohtak IPM CoachingSignup and sample 9 full classes for free.
