Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

a) Number of people getting B is 180 on a total of 608 so p=180/608=0.296

b)There are 178 students having a score between 21 and 30 and 62 of them get B so p=62/178=0.348

c)Let's call B : student score 11-20 and A : student get B 

p(A inter B)=45/608=0.074

p(A inter B)=P(A)*Pa(B) (Pa(B) = probability getting 11-20 knowing getting B)

Pa(B)=p(A inter B)/P(A)=0.074/0.296=0.25

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
