lets have an example:

in a box, I have 52 normal, unbiased playing cards. there is only a narrow opening and the inside of the box cannot be seen. the box is nicely shaken and the cards are jumbled.

I take 4 cards from the box.

Find the probability of getting:
1) at most 1 queen
Here they mean that out of the 4 cards I picked, there must be 1 queen at maximum

2) At least 1 queen
here they mean that at minimum, we must get 1 queen as a minimum
