All kings ,queens and aces are removed from a pack of 52 cards . The remaining cards are well shuffled and a card is drawn from it . Find the probability that the drawn card is

(A) a black face card

(B) a red card

Total no. of Queens, kings and aces in a deck of 52 cards = 12

Now Total Outcomes = 52 - 12 = 40

a) Probability of a Black Face Card = 2/40 = 1/20 ( Since 2 Jacks of Black are still remaining)

b) Probability of a Red Card = 20/40 = 1/2 [ Since overall six cards of red are removed i.e. Queen, King and Ace of ♥(Hearts) ♦(Diamonds)]
