Correct. These events are not disjoint. The Jack, Queen, and King of hearts are both face cards and hearts.

Correct. A = {GGG} for all girls. B = {BBB, BBG, BGB, GBB} for less than two girls. The outcome GGG is not in B, so the two events are disjoint.

Correct. The probabilities sum to 0.17 + 0.15 + 0.23 + 0.13 + 0.34 = 1.02. This is more than 1, so the distribution is not legitimate. Either someone in the registrar’s office has misclassified some students, or there are students with double majors that span the categories.

Correct. The probability of the entire sample space must be 1, and these options cover all possible majors. Subtract the total of the given probabilities from 1 to find P(Other).

Correct. Recycling at least some of the time means the student is *not *in the “Never” category. Also, these outcomes are disjoint (students could only select one answer). The desired probability is 1 – 0.05. Note that you could also add the probabilities of the three categories for people who *do* recycle.

Correct: Recycling most of the time logically means the student is in the “Always” or “Usually” categories. Also, these outcomes are disjoint (students could only select one answer). The desired probability is 0.55 + 0.25.
