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

All the possible cards is 52,

Spades are 13, so probability of a spade is 13/52

We have thirteen types of cards arranged from ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,j,q,k, probability of an even which is    a 2,4,6,8,10  is 5/13

total probability is therefore 13/52  *5/13 =  5/52

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